symposium /sɪmˈpəʊzɪəm/ n.
1. A conference or meeting to discuss a particular subject.
2. A drinking party or convivial discussion, especially as held in ancient Greece after a banquet.
The season culminates in a weekend-long symposium: featuring special guests Ryoko Akama, Jennie Gottschalk, Louise Gray and Andrea Young, this will be an opportunity for local and visiting artists alike to reflect together on female creativity and the legacy and future of women in new music.

As the Ancients knew, good food and drink is crucial to proceedings. We are taking this element seriously: the fabulous Anna Kenyon will be preparing hearty fare to inspire body and mind. Morning coffee will be provided upon arrival both days, as will a hot vegetarian lunch, and afternoon tea on the Saturday.
