Post-Festival Wrap Up

Thank you for attending the 2018 MEMS Festival – we’re thrilled that this year’s MEMS fest was the biggest yet and can’t wait to see how it continues to grow. 

The Eastbridge Hospital gardens

We’re putting photos from the weekend onto our Facebook page, and you can see tweets from the weekend by looking through our hashtag (linked here), but here’s a glimpse of MEMS fest by the numbers: 

57 presentations during…

…6 panel sessions

4 boxes of macaroons

11 volunteers (whose help was greatly appreciated)

20 books on display in the Kent Archives

10+ cute little animals photographed during the “Pens and Pigments” workshop

Innumerable tweets throughout the weekend

12 broadswords used in the HEMA workshop

5 types of Middle English punctuation marks on display

0 scenes from Othello (sorry)

And 6 members of the organizing committee who hope you all had a fabulous time.
