Home    FAQs    Festival Booking Form   Programme: Mon Tue Wed Thu 




Oxford’s Ashmolean Art and Archaeological Museum (top left) opens at 10.00.  Entry is free.  Meet your festival host in the museum’s Hedley Lecture Theatre for coffee and biscuits at 10.45.  At 11.00 take a “master class” with county players Nick Smith (Oxfordshire) and Mike Willoughby (Worcestershire) based on the Wednesday evening hands.  Copies of the hands will be available.


On your way to St Hugh’s on foot (20 mins) or bus (5 mins) stop at one of Oxford’s cafes, pubs or restaurants (you could try The Ashmolean’s own rooftop restaurant) or pre-order sandwiches to be ready for you on arrival at St Hugh’s where our seminars will start in the Maplethorpe Building at 1.30. 


Two seminars will be given by Ed Scerri (Berks and Bucks) and Patrick Shields ( Glos and Wales).  Ed will tackle some aspects of declarer play and Patrick will address defence.


Tea or coffee will be free.  Wine and soft drinks can be purchased.


Bridge starts at 4.15.  Duplicate players play in sections stratified according to Wednesday’s results.  Rubber bridge players choose between supervised (expert advice available on request) or unsupervised.


We aim to complete the bridge session at about 7.15. 


A three course dinner with wine will be served in the College Dining Hall (top right) and will end with prize-giving and we say our goodbyes.  


Price for this day - £65 per player.
