On Sunday participants will be involved in a number of social activities in the morning as well as having a chance to rehearse their group's version of the Received Text on the stage of the Aemilian Theatre. In the afternoon each group will perform their pieces for the assembled festival participants.
The event will involve over 70 people including participants, leaders and staff.
