Pub in Music School Recreating the Oxbridge Tradition in Canberra
A media report suggests the ANU School of Music is planning a pub in the foyer ("Culture war brews over Wig and Pen's move to ANU's Llewellyn Hall, Emma Macdonald, SMH, June 16, 2014). The Wing and Pen is near the ANU campus and popular with staff and students, providing an atmosphere similar to the legendary academic pubs of Oxford and Cambridge (I once held an IT meeting in the Royal Oak, Woodstock Road, Oxford). The Wing and Pen has to move out due to redevelopment of their premises.
