Alumni are cordially invited to attend a celebration of World Mosquito Day 2013. The Malaria Centre at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine will host a Murder Mystery with a malaria-themed twist in the grand surroundings of the School’s listed, wood-panelled library.
Date: Friday 16 August 2013
Time: 4.00 pm – 6 pm
Venue: Library, LSHTM, Keppel Street, London, WC1E 7HT, UK
Entertainment will be provided by The Mustard Club Players and Binkie’s band will play tunes from the 1920’s and 30’s.
A complimentary cocktail and refreshments will be included in the price.
Mosquito Day honours August 20th 1897 when Sir Ronald Ross made the discovery that malaria is transmitted by mosquitos: our event is inspired by the tea party held in his honour at the Ross Institute on 20th August 1931 – in this spirit, there will be a 1930’s/tropical theme to the event as well as celebrating the contemporary work of malaria centre members across the world.
Prizes include best dressed sleuth and the mosquito day quiz (dress up if you like, dress down if you don’t)
