Board games & manual technology

Sunday night 19.30-22.30, in the Lower Hall

Board games

Last year's board games night was a great success.

The format's simple: just turn up (with or without a game or two that you think other people might enjoy) and play.

You don't have to be a games fiend to take part. It's for everyone, and it's for fun.

If you're planning to bring a game, you can let us know and we'll list it here.

Manual technology

Knitting, knotting, crochet, macramé, weaving.

Like programming, these older manual skills are rule-based and involve mathematics, looping and following sequential instructions. Programmers who are introduced to them invariably find them intellectually fascinating and physically satisfying.

Some experienced crafters will be on hand. Whatever your level of experience - including absolutely none - you'll be welcome to join in, have a go, and sit around and chat while you do it.

Materials and equipment will be provided, but you can also bring your own.
