2021 Literacy Society Dinner

November 2021

On Tuesday 16 November, the members of the English and Drama Societies attended the annual Literary Society Dinner. At the start of the evening students attended an enlightening talk on the nature of publication by Nicola Beauman founder of the Persephone publishing house. This talk raised questions on the validity of the English literary cannon and the place of women’s writing. Then we enjoyed a 3-course meal prepared by the school Catering Department and took part in a literary themed murder mystery created by one of the students. It was a delightful evening for all.
