Summer BBQ and Cocktail Party

Cotswold House, Westwood, Uni of Bath
Saturday 31st July 2004

It's the summer again, so we're making the best use of our garden (which is responding well to Isobel's tender ministrations) by holding a barbeque during the afternoon of 31st July, followed by a Cocktail Party in the evening.


From noon onwards on Saturday 31st July 2004 for the bbq, cocktails from whenever we feel up to it (probably 7pm-ish). People turning up early will probably be assigned menial tasks, since we'll no doubt be running late and frantically trying to get everything ready in time.


Cotswold House, Westwood, University of Bath, Bath BA2 7JY. Plentiful car parking, regular buses to and from the train station. For full instructions on how to get to the campus see the University's Getting Here web page. Once on campus, follow this map.

What (to bring)

Meat animal or vegetable for the bbq plus enough bread for you (but not to feed an army!). We will be doing salads etc but if you feel inspired to make salads, cocktail nibbles, cakes etc, please consult with our head chef (a.k.a. Isobel) so we don't end up with 25 tomato salads and no lettuce.

We are planning to get beer from one of the local breweries (most likely Bath Ales), so if you'd like in on this for a small contribution towards the cost, let us know.

We still have a surfeit of gin, so the standing rules remain: if anyone dares to bring a bottle of gin, they will be forced to do all the washing up while hanging upside down!


We have crash space for at least a dozen in the house (probably more) and if you have a tent and don't mind camping out, we have plenty of space for that as well. Other than that, we can recommend the St Christopher's Hostel in town and the YHA is only slightly down the hill. Cheap hotels: Travelodge and Holiday Inn Express.
