We had a great time in Oxford on the 12th November at the APGRD, where we took a trip down memory lane with David Stuttard and a very welcoming audience. The evening included wine, nibbles and performances from aod's repertoire, plus an interactive taster of one of our educational workshops, which went down really well.
Megan received a number of requests to join aod's mailing list after the event, as well as a Fod (friend of dionysus) request, and we are thankful to the APGRD for hosting us and for supporting and sharing our work.
