Following on from last week’s interview with the 2013 Conference Deans, we take a look at what people can expect from the entertainment and fringe programme line up…
The 2013 Conference includes some lively entertainment and a range of invigorating or relaxing activities to suit all tastes:
The ABP ‘Pub Quiz’
On Thursday evening, after enjoying an informal meal in the Steam, Bake & Grill Restaurant, join us from 9pm in the Bar for the ABP ‘Pub Quiz’. Hosted by Edinburgh Fringe Stand Up Comedy Finalist, Leon Scott, team up and test your knowledge in our psychology themed quiz.
Friday night Black Tie Gala Dinner
Held in the beautiful 18th Century Manor House, throw your glad rags on, follow the torch lit path and indulge yourself at the glamorous Gala Dinner.
Following dinner, delegates can then look forward to…
Throw some shapes on the dance floor to the fabulous Soul City, all the way from the infamous Casablanca club in Brighton. Playing anything from funk and soul to arms in the air contemporary tunes!
The ABP Conference wouldn’t be the same without a piano, so for Friday night we’ll have a Baby Grand in the Lounge area of the Manor House, ready for someone to jump on the stool and tickle the ivories. Additional musical instruments welcome, so bring your guitars, sitars, flutes, harps and bongos.
To help capture excitement of the evening we’ll have a photographer on hand all evening, who will also be manning a photo booth. So grab that silly hat or afro wig and say ‘cheese’!
