[Events review]

Organised by Kip Jones and Lee- Ann Fenge, who are researchers at Bournemouth University, the two-day Masterclass was staged for 25 participants in order to be informed of new knowledge about growing older as gay or lesbian. A third member of the research team,Marilyn Cash, joined us on the second day.In addition to the event being staged by Bournemouth University, there was also a fantastic array of food and drinks available for participants throughout the two days in Bournemouth University’s Executive Business Centre; a location that meant we had the whole of the top floor with a breath-taking view overlooking Bournemouth town.Prior to arriving Kip had sent out a paper which helped inform us of what the day might involve: Collecting older lesbians’ and gay men’s stories of rural life in south-west England and Wales: ‘We were obviously gay girls…(s) he removed his cow from our field’(Jones, Fenge, Read & Cash, 2013).
