The Coleridge Summer Conference meets again this year in the lime-tree bowers of Cannington College, among the beautiful Quantock Hills a few miles from Nether Stowey and Alfoxden.
The College’s garden grounds will be available for all participants, and there will be walks on the Quantocks and to the sea. The Rose and Crown inn will welcome us in the evenings. The Abyssinian maid will be flying in; bring your own dulcimer and join us for drinks and talk under the stars on long balmy summer evenings.
The summer conferences are always well attended by a broad spectrum of Coleridgeans: academics, students, and people who simply share an enthusiasm for Coleridge’s life and works. You’ll have the opportunity to hear a number of knowledgeable and enthusiastic speakers on Coleridgean topics. The conference is now arranged in a number of parallel sessions - you can choose which you feel will be of the most interest to you. There is plenty of good accommodation available on the Cannington campus, and the food is delicious.
It’s not all study! The Summer Conferences are also fun and friendly, and you are certain to make a good number of new friends. If you choose to relax locally, the College’s extensive garden grounds are available for all participants, and there are a variety of walks in the village and on the levels towards the River Parrett. The Rose and Crown inn will welcome us in the evenings. And the Person from Porlock is expected. Join us for drinks and talk under the stars on long balmy summer evenings.
