Rolf at Warwick

@ VOL 35 ON JUN 07, 2018

In 'The story of @RolfAtWarwick' Helen Bevan will tell us about Rolf, her black cat who roams the Warwick University campus, sneaking into buildings. He used to disappear for 4 or 5 days at a time & she had no idea where we was or if something terrible had happened to him. Her family put his phone number on his collar & they were getting 6 or 7 calls a day from staff & students asking us if they had lost a cat. So they set Rolf up with a Twitter account & hundreds of his friends on campus have taken Rolf to their hearts. This is the ultimate feelgood PK presentation.




The trees are quiet

It'd be great to hear from anyone who thinks they might have a bit of time to donate to helping put these events on - we could probably do with a few more people on the committee to give us a bit more capacity. If you're interested, or you have any really great ideas for a theme, or if you'd like to speak at or curate an event - please do get in touch with us.
In the meantime, have a browse through our back catalogue of presentations and let us know what your faves are!
Janet, Richard, Sarah, Dom and Paul
