Students who have won prizes will attend a VIP Winners' Lunch buffet, as our guests, to be held at the School of Computer Science in the Kilburn Building (5 minutes walk from the Martin Harris centre). One teacher per Individual Winner or Group Winner may also attend the Winners' Lunch.

For all non-winning students in school parties, we regret that we can't provide lunch. We therefore suggest that all schools bring a packed lunch for each student in their party. Rooms will be provided in which to eat packed lunches, and schools can eat outside if the weather is fine.

Our marshalls will guide winners and non-winners to their respective lunch venues.

We would prefer that schools attend in school uniform, but this is at your discretion.
