Social Programme


There will be evening receptions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday is a free afternoon. The banquet will be on Thursday evening.

On Monday evening we will have Whisky Tasting and short introduction to Whisky. Please be in Physics and Astronomy shortly after 8 pm to enjoy the introduction.

There are plenty of walks around the local area so if you might want to do this please bring walking kit (depending upon the level you might want to try). The running routes are also interesting so some trainers and kit could be useful.

If you might want to go into the sea please remember appropriate clothing such as bathers and possibly a suitable towel. On the free afternoon you may wish to take part in some beach sports so again please make sure you have good clothing for this. Swimming is at your own risk.  Please note that lifeguard patrols do not begin on West Sands beach until June 18th, for further beach and safety information see
