All our events are designed to introduce more people to British pilgrimage, raise funds for the BPT, and to help establish a network of British pilgrim sleep-spots.
Come along, have an amazing time, and support the revival of British Pilgrimage.
March 13th 2021: Glastonbury Pilgrimage in a Day. 7 miles. £60 for a single pilgrim ticket, or if two pilgrims order together, £100 for a double pilgrim ticket (i.e. £50 each pilgrim). After a challenging winter for everyone we hope that March will birth new green shoots of happiness, and so we look forward to a great day’s pilgrimage in Glastonbury in March. // This beautiful 7-mile day route around Glastonbury centres around two things: healing water and the rich overlay of traditions and stories. There will be lots of dialogue between folklore and religion – think Arthur, Guinevere & Morgan Le Fay, the man who buried Jesus, the Holy Grail, the goddesses of Ceridwen, Bride & Brigid. // You will meet the old oaks of Gog Magog, the Tor and its Egg Stone, the White Spring, the Chalice Red Spring, St Margaret’s Chapel, Wearyall Holy Thorn, and Bride’s Mound and Well.
March 20th 2021: The Old Way – A 1-day section from Nutbourne to Chichester Cathedral. 10 miles. £60 for a single pilgrim ticket or, if two pilgrims order together, £100 for a double pilgrim ticket (i.e. £50 each pilgrim). Led by BPT’s Guy Hayward, he will guide pilgrims along a section of the BPT’s flagship project, the Old Way. // Meeting the Old Way path at Emsworth, this is a pilgrimage where land and water intertwine. The pilgrimage, for the most part, follows the coastline of Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and meets two river sources: the Ems and the Lavant. // Pilgrims will also pass through Prinstead Beach, before reaching St Mary’s Church, Chidham, where St Cuthman (the wheelbarrow saint) was born. Next, the path winds its way along the coast and into Bosham, where one of the oldest churches in the land sits, as well as a spectacular vista of land and water. From Bosham pilgrims will walk on through ancient oaks, wetlands and millponds, before making their way to this pilgrimage’s culmination: Chichester Cathedral.
If Covid forces the event date to be cancelled, we will transfer your ticket to a postponed date in the future. But we are also offering full refunds in this scenario too, should you wish for that.
