On a cold day in March, a group of sixth form English Literature students ventured into London to attend a day of lectures to further explore our study of Scott Fitzgerald’s novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. We were able to hear the ideas of respected critics and lecturers who explored the novel’s key themes and ideas, as well as delving into the history of 1920s American culture, the era in which the narrative is set. It was an enjoyable day which has further developed our knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the text.    By Jordan Nugara 12G
