    How far is the accomodation from the playing venue, and also will the convenience store be open, or if not is there another shop nearby?

    Yvonne or Lisa should be able to assist with most enquires

    …I was told there is a small spar supermarket on campus but it might be closed at weekends but that other shops are within walking distance (what is walking distance? that’s another question)
