Jubilee Celebrations 2015

The Reverend Dr James Parkes formalised the creation of the Parkes Library and Parkes Centre in the 1950s, the Library was then transferred to the University of Southampton in 1964 and re-opened in conjunction with the Parkes Centre in 1965.
After fifty years of growth and development we think the anniversary in 2015 was a wonderful opportunity to assess the contribution that the Parkes Institute has made locally, nationally and globally.

You will find information on this page about the series of events that occurred in Southampton, London and Cape Town that celebrated the Institute's achievements and future directions.  The events culminated in a major international conference on Jewish/non-Jewish relations that was held at the University of Southampton in September 2015.
