UPDATE: Weather for sunday means we'll be at the Royal George rather than outside (Ginny)
THEME: Bacchanalian feast! (belated Autumn Equinox celebration)
WEAR: Togas or Autumn colours (not compulsory of course)
BRING: If you would like to - Make or buy a small gift to exchange ( food would be most appropriate) 'secret sagan' !
EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY : The Royal George does decent enough food so all we have to do is make our own merriness!
If you're up for it we could ask (warn!) the pub beforehand and change there into togas to avoid weird looks on the tube. For those not wishing to toga-up, you could wear autumn colours if you like- red, orange, brown, purple, orange. Not 'compulsory' of course but might help set the scene and make it feel like a proper celebration
The 'secret santa/sagan' type thing of gift exchange is where we all make or buy a small gift, and then draw names to exchange gifts with another on the day. As it's autumn, ...harvest and all that gifts of food would seem appropriate - nuts, jams, cakes , pickles, preserves, honey ...that kind of thing ...
October Social will be some kind of event - open to suggestions...bowling perhaps?
