Coutts Lecture Theatre 3.31 - Wills Memorial Building

The Ovid in the West Country competition is part of an initiative set up by the Cambridge Schools Classics Project (CSCP) to promote Classics in state schools. The University of Bristol and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) are delighted to be partnering with CSCP to run this competition for Year 7 and 8 students in local schools.

This event is open to participating schools and is intended to celebrate all the hard work that students will have put into the competition. The submitted entries will be on display throughout the evening and prizes will be awarded by our panel of judges.

We are delighted to be able to welcome Daniel Morden to this event. Daniel is a professional storyteller and has delighted audiences all over the world with his performances. He also recorded the Classical Tales along with Hugh Lupton. Parents and guardians are very welcome to attend the prize-giving ceremony.
