When the theatre was first new the towers managed to rip up the surface of the floor, making it even mor difficult to push them about!. Also all of the wood block flooring in the areas around the theatre a...

Re: Wooden legs

Did CH have more than it's fair share of monoped employees? In my time there was Kit Aitken (from whom I learnt the correct spelling of that immensely useful word Eschscholtzia), the school barber (who at the speed he worked must have been paid per head), and the bokker in the wardrobe. Since leavi...

After a successful match vs CH (we won in the morning and they won in the afternoon, and I joined the "Clay Pidgin Preservation Society"......) I now have to turn my attention to Bisley. Last year we almost had 3 teams, and it would be good to do so again. Match starts at 17:15 and goes on for some ...

There were so many of them around however, some even home made from soap impressions. At one time the he...

does anyone know why we all used to give blood samples in exchange for a one or two pound book voucher?
We were expected to give them for free! (part of assessing 'flu jabs)

Cardiff University

I’m possibly not the best person to ask as I’m only a part-time postgrad! However if anyone wants to know about Cardiff I’ll do my best to answer!
