    Have dinner on Saturday night with others in the group, catch a movie or see a band – it is promising to be a weekend not to be missed!

    Peer Connect Dinner: We will be hosting a Peer Connect Dinner on the Friday night, so if you are not able to stay the entire weekend this is a great opportunity to connect with others over a lovely 3 course meal.
