Third Week - Friday 13th May - DEBATE
Budding politicians, forsake the Union and make your way to the Lady Brodie Room, where society members will squabble over the question: "Were Dwarves a Mistake?" Was the date of this debate a mistake, I wonder?

Sixth Week - Saturday 4th June - QUEST
Take the opportunity to socialise with our friends from the Arthurian Society, as Andrew and Elspeth organise a joint Quest. Meet at Trinity College gates at 2pm. Cost: about 4 pounds, which will include a picnic dinner (the price may be waived, however, for people volunteering to be 'clues'...). Participants are "encouraged" to come in fancy dress.

A brand new, innovative version of the perennial quiz favourite!
