- Saturday Office Open Days – In addition to our Open Days held every Thursday, we sometimes open up our office, bookshop and library on Saturdays too. You will be able to purchase guides for walkers and cyclists on various routes of the Way through Western Europe, as well as the all-important Pilgrim Passport. There will be experienced pilgrims on hand to advise, recommend and reassure! Whether you’re planning a walk, or have just returned from the Camino and want to share your experience, Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to share knowledge and memories with like-minded people. You’re also able to become a member of the CSJ for those wanting to provide and receive continued support.
Saturday 9th March, Saturday 13th April, Saturday 11th May (11am-3:30pm)
- CSJ Wine Bar Evenings – We have started off our camino wine bar evenings again, with growing amounts of interest. The second Tuesday of every month, a few of us gather in Blackfriars Wine Bar at 6:30pm, a stone’s throw from the CSJ Office for wine and pizza to talk about all things ‘camino’, whether that is giving advice to those that want to go or reminiscing with those that have come back. Anyone is welcome to come and discuss all things camino!
- Practical Pilgrim Days – An opportunity to hear what others say about the pilgrimage experience, to build up your knowledge of the route and to ask all those niggling questions about gear, maps, washing, socks… Opportunities to learn from others and browse the guides to see which suits you best.
London – Saturday 16th February @ Christ Church, Blackfriars Road, London SE1 8NY – Sold out

Remember too, that we have regional groups who organise their own activities. Get in touch with the office to find out where you nearest group is; or if you’d like to start your own!
