Historic Cambridge, England.
There is no place quite like Cambridge in the entire world. It's a beautiful location in which to host the Alternatives2019 Conference.
Cambridge is a university city and the county town of Cambridgeshire, England, on the River Cam, approximately 50 miles (80 km) north of London.
The world-renowned University of Cambridge was founded in 1209. The buildings of the university include King's College Chapel, Cavendish Laboratory, and the Cambridge University Library, one of the largest legal deposit libraries in the world. The city's skyline is dominated by several college buildings, along with the spire of the Our Lady and the English Martyrs Church, the chimney of Addenbrooke's Hospital, and St John's College Chapel tower.
Jesus College, University of Cambridge
Our conference takes place in the historic and prestigious Jesus College, University of Cambridge.
Jesus College was established between 1496 and 1516 on the site of the twelfth-century Benedictine nunnery of St Mary and St Radegund by John Alcock, then Bishop of Ely. The cockerel is the symbol of Jesus College, after the surname of its founder.
Three members of Jesus College have received a Nobel Prize. Two fellows of the college have been appointed to the International Court of Justice. Notable alumni include Thomas Cranmer, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Reid, Lord Toulson, Sir Rupert Jackson, Sir David Hare, Sir Roger Scruton, and Nick Hornby.
The conference will be our venue for the three days as we will enjoy breakfast and lunch at the college as well as use the library for our presentations and workshops. Located in the heart of Cambridge, with most of the city's landmarks within a five-minute walk, there is no better place to be for Alternatives2019.
