Newcastle and Buxton, new dates – oh my!

It’s been a little while since our last post, but the summer has come and gone and we are back on the road!

A couple weeks ago we delivered our first course of the new academic year in Newcastle (where we got to meet some really great people, AND see the awe-inspiring Angel of the North) and then popped across to beautiful Buxton to run some short workshops on Mystery Boxes and Powerful Questions, hands-on activities that we use on our course.

Did you know the Romans actually established the first spa in Buxton, and named the town ‘Aquae Arnemetiae’? I didn’t… but drinking from the permanent flow at St Anne’s Well revealed that water is still leaving the spring at a temperature of about 28C- gulping a mouthful of warm water straight from a well on a chilly day is delightfully weird!
