Tuesday 22 October - City

The Library will provide a light morning tea each day, though sadly we won't be able to provide cafe quality coffee... there are too many excellent options for coffee on campus! We will provide tea and water though, and don't worry - there should be biscuits left for the afternoon sessions.
