It was time to party, they assured us, like it was 1413.
As the bi-annual ITA conference drew to a close after a week of keynotes, workshops and presentations at Glyndwr University, we all retired to the Ruthin Castle Hotel for the Jester’s Feast, a modern-day recreation of a medieval banquet.
It was a night of mead, meat and merry-making – a camped-up melange of Spamelot meets Carry On Up The Middle Ages.
For some, the highlight was a rousing chorus of Men of Harlech during the second meat course.
For others, it was possibly the goat-milking dance, whereby delegates were treated to a colour-guided guide to learning Welsh while pretending to milk the castle goat with the aid of a serving girl. Or possibly not.
Either way, the conference is over and it wasn’t all syllabub and showing off.
I ran the social media team, organising a group of five student bloggers to live blog the conference from Tuesday to Thursday last week.
We worked hard and our collective efforts are compiled in this Storify, ITA conference at Glyndwr University Wrexham.
Take a read. Let me what you think.
