Free table (Leavers please read!)
by Michelle Parkman - Friday, 17 May 2019, 11:47 AM

As some of you start to pack up your rooms I wanted to make you aware of the 'free' table in the chapel.

If you have things that you think other people may want (crockery, cups, utensils, decorations etc) and you don't want anymore please come and put them on our free table for others to take.

Measure for Measure
by Michelle Parkman - Friday, 17 May 2019, 10:19 AM


I try and get along to any performance the actors are putting on and yesterday I went to Measure for Measure by the first years.

I wanted to recommend it to anyone who can get there this evening as it is the last performance and I loved it!

I promise you, as someone who doesn't usually 'do' Shakespeare it was worth it.

The acting was fantastic, the stage set up was impacting and the costumes spot on.

If you are free this evening give yourself and evening out at 7.30pm in the Desmond Tutu Theatre, you wont regret it.
