We kindly invite you to join us on Saturday November 4th, 2023 to celebrate the silver jubilee of Alumni Association English Language and Culture Groningen!
You are very welcome from 3pm at Café de Sleutel (Noorderhaven 72, Groningen). We’ll start our official program at 3.30pm with an informal lecture titled “The Call of the Wild? Why We Still Love the Brontes” by none other than Helen Wilcox. Then we’ll have a short break, followed by a panel discussion. This panel will consist of the esteemed honorary members of the association, Helen Wilcox, Hans Jansen and Monique Kroese. At approximately 6pm, it’s time for dinner. Afterwards (about 7.30pm), with bellies full of food, it’s time to test the brains with a classic activity, a pubquiz!
