The 2015 competition will be held on THURSDAY 5th MARCH at Queen’s College, 43-49 Harley Street London W1G 8BT (parking is not available at the school). The competition will be held in a single round. The event will begin at 2:00 pm and finish by about 5.00 pm.
The afternoon will start with a brief example of reading Greek by John Hazel, former Head of Classics at City of London School for Boys. We will end with two short talks on the challenge of writing Sapphics by our judges, Dr Armand D’Angour of Oxford university who is currently researching the sounds of Greek music and poetry, and Bijan Omrani, the author, historian and writer of Latin verse.
Schools and individuals not entering candidates for the competition, but who would like their staff or pupils to learn more about spoken Latin and Greek, perhaps with a view to entering another year, are warmly encouraged to attend, as are friends and parents of the candidates.
We will break for tea after the first three sections, from about 3:00 p.m. - 3.20 p.m.
The competition is in six sections, as follows:
1. Beginners’ Latin, open to ONE ENTRY only from each school by not more than 2 pupils who have not yet completed 5 terms of Latin: Cambridge Latin Course, Book III, St 21, Memor rem suscipit, part II.
