On Thursday 15th December the RGS's second Saturnalia festival was celebrated. In the light of last year's successful event it was decided to celebrate this year in the larger venue of the Uppper Library.
The Saturnalia was a highlight of the Roman calendar, when masters and slaves swapped roles, gifts were exchanged, and the god Saturn was worshipped.
In keeping with the Roman event there was a public banquet and the raffle prize winner was awarded the traditional soft hat (pilleus) that was worn on the day.
A magnificent cake, appropriately decorated, was supplied by Mrs Freeman. Master of Ceremonies was once again Mr Shreeve (num quis miratur ? ), who wholeheartedly embraced the role. Mr Edwards doled out oracles elegantly composed in Latin.
We would like to thank Miss Evans and teachers of the Classics department for organising the celebration and we hope to celebrate again next year. io!
