England/Scotland Tour Interest Meetings March 31 & April 6
SALISBURY, MD--A summer tour of England and Scotland has been organized in conjunction with the 1999 Millennium Literature/Film Conference to be held at the University of Bath June 30-July 2. The conference is sponsored by the Literature/Film Association and co-directed by Dr. Jim Welsh of the Salisbury State University English Department.
After three nights in historic Bath for the conference, the tour will go on to Chester, Grasmere in the Lake District (two nights), then to Scotland for Fort William, the Isle of Skye and Edinburgh, then to York and London (three nights), returning to Salisbury on July 13. The departure date is June 29.
On the way to Chester from Bath, the tour will stop at Hay-on-Wye in Wales, famous for its bookstores. The Prince of Wales hotel in Grasmere on the lake is just across the road from Wordsworth‚s Dove Cottage. In Scotland, one night will be spent on the Isle of Skye at the Cullin Hills hotel. The London hotel is the Forte Post House, Bloomsbury, just north of Covent Garden. Welsh has served as tour guide for 18 trips to Britain, but this is the first summer excursion since 1984. Estimated cost for 20 people, including flights, land transportation, hotels and breakfasts, is $2,276, a bargain for summer in Britain.
Interest meetings are scheduled for Wednesday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in Devilbiss Science Hall Room 225 and on Tuesday, April 6, at 9 p.m. in Devilbiss Hall Auditorium. For further information call Welsh at 410-749-4190, or John Hall of Hall‚s Tidewater Travel at 410-749-8131.
