Session VIII (2005), 16 October-12 November

The second autumn session of 2005 began on Sunday, 16 October with four UK Fellows and two overseas Fellows in residence at the Castle: Heather Spears (Canada/Denmark), Jackie Kohnstamm (England, UK), Jesse Ball (USA), Meryl Pugh (England, UK), Caroline Adams (UK) and Siân Preece (Wales/Scotland, UK).  It was Heather’s second visit to the Castle – her first Fellowship was in 1997 when Adam Czerniawski was Administrator.

As Guy Fawkes night fell during this session we laid on a bonfire in the kitchen garden and  Cook prepared a barbeque; afterwards, several Fellows sang Scottish folksongs and recited poetry.
