Meet just before 11am at The Terrace tea rooms beside the Ornamental Lake. The closest entry point is through Gate A, which is on the corner of Alexandra Avenue and Anderson Street.
Bring pen and notebook. Also, please bring your own lunch or buy some from the expensive café.
Costs: $20 full
As places are limited, please contact Myron if you wish to attend at : email@example.com
