Cena Latina

On Tuesday 19th November 2013, we held a Cena Latina at Bristol Grammar School.
It was the ‘brain-child’ of Kurt Lampe, at Bristol University, and 24 people gathered to have a great Roman feast as prepared by the wonderful catering department at Bristol Grammar School. We ate a variety of Roman-inspired dishes, and finished up by singing all four verses of Carmen Bristoliense, the BGS School Song.

Here are some pictures of the evening.
