We are robing and/or wearing academic gowns (with all black underneath). If you have none of these we will try to supply spares – bring all black outfit if in doubt.

Dinner plans for Saturday

More info to come from Emily. In short, you are all invited to a gargantuan banquet in the Gothic Church. The plan will be chip in for cost of dinner, bring a bottle, enjoy the plush surroundings, spend half the cash of eating out. Plan?


You can rest assured I’ve got this covered. It’s always nice on CanLit weekends!

  1. Hey Tim, thanks for all the info, really looking forward to it!
    please excuse severe saddo tendency here (!), but trying to get everything organised so I don’t arrive in a mess (that’s what a 6 month old baby does to you!) would it be at all possible to publish the weekend’s rep running order on the site, so for those (ie me!) i can print it off and mark up which piece is for which service in advance…

    Ta muchly!

    Claire x
