SYMPOSIUM

Come to the Symposium, a place for discourse, food, wine and entertainment.

Traditionally a Symposium was a male only occurrence with music, singing, oration and discourse while eating and drinking or being entertained by dance displays. The most famous reference we have is of course Plato’s Symposium.
Our Symposium is of course open to all. Come share your philosophical bent, your take on the Nature of Life, a perspective on why we entertain or desire to be entertained, perhaps a view on science and human nature. Present a dance, a poem, a play or a song. Write a short a discourse on an aspect of life. A Pan-Hellenic feast is planned for the evening with A&S entries to be performed or presented during the evening. As is customary in the North, there will be an afternoon of entertainment and a light repast to keep you going until the evening.
Come and join us for a glimpse of life from the Hellenic world.
