Culture Course 3: Scotland and England – friends and rivals


This is the Culture Course that was due to be held on Friday 2 March, but was postponed due to the snowy weather.
If you had booked a place for the previous culture course on Fri 2 March, your ticket will still be valid, so there is no need to book again.


This event is for Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Masters/PhD) students only and is not suitable for children under 10.

Dinner and discussion at the home of Richard and Margaret Blake, and an opportunity to learn more about English culture, history and beliefs. A hot meal (with vegetarian options available) is followed by puddings, and then a talk from Richard. This event is free, but booking in advance is essential, as it is very popular, and numbers are limited.

Please book a place via Evenbrite

If you book tickets for this event then find you are unable to attend, please “return” the tickets by logging into eventbrite, so that another student can come instead.  We only have a total of 30 tickets available for this event.

Scotland and England – friends and rivals

For centuries Scotland and England were different countries, often at war. Eventually Scotland’s king became king of England too, and later the two countries shared one parliament at Westminster. This peaceful Union has been very successful for over 300 years – but will it last much longer?
