Historic York
Dorothy Dunnett Mini-Gathering

Saturday April 7th 2001
10am - 5pm

York is a magical place, especially in the Springtime. Take 'time out' and join us for a truly wonderful day in the mediaeval setting of the
Bishop's Chamber
at St William's College

nestling under the walls of the Minster

Our programme is unique and will appeal both to DD fans and to those who like Renaissance music.

Dante Ferrara is a well informed and talented expert on Elizabethan instruments who will demonstrate and talk on these instruments during the morning session. He will also entertain us with music whilst we have our buffet lunch.

Pauline Brace needs no introduction as our afternoon speaker. Pauline will be linking the music theme to the novels which is sure to be both pleasurable and stimulating.

A general discussion will follow on the definition of a 'Hero'.

Refreshments and biscuits will be served on arrival and mid-afternoon, and a buffet lunch will be served midday.

We have also arranged an evening dinner at the same venue for those who wish to extend the day. All are welcome (including husbands!)

Sunday 8th April

For those that are interested we have organised a guided tour around the Merchant Adventurers' Hall at 12 noon.

Cost for the full day programme is £30 per person and the evening dinner is £22 per person including coffee and home-made fudge.
