About Us

**** INVITATION TO AGM****

The Cinque Ports Scribes was formed in 1992 to cater for those who have a practical interest in Calligraphy and the art of Lettering and Illumination.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Calligraphy and the Lettering arts, particularly those living in Kent and the South East.

We have exhibited at many locations throughout Kent, and in both 2005 and 2017 we hosted the CLAS Regional Day.

We hold one, two and occasionally three day workshops in Hastingleigh, covering a wide range of calligraphic and related topics. For those coming by train the closest station to our venue is Wye (Kent). If taking the fast train from London, you’ll need to change at Ashford International.

We also organise occasional visits to exhibitions or places of interest. Check the events diary for more information on upcoming events, the news section for any news, and the updates page to see amendments/additions.

We hope you find this website both enjoyable and informative, but if you require any further information please contact us.

You can also find us on Facebook.
