[DRA] Kingdom University

The Canton of Unikankare is proud to invite all to attend the Kingdom University held in Brinkhall manor in Turku. The weekend will be filled with arts and sciences, great lectures and intriguing workshops. Come to learn new things and share your knowledge! The event will culminate to a delicious feast and a grand ball.

Event Site:
Beautiful 18th century Brinkhall manor (address Brinkhallintie 414, Turku) is in Turku about 20 minutes drive from Turku city center. The site is in our exclusive use and consists of two buildings which are usable in November. There is an accommodation building which has crash space. No beds are unfortunately available. The showers are off-site about 2,5 km drive away. The main building has two floors. Ground floor will hold the feast and some classes and the upper floor will have space for the rest of the classes and dancing. The buildings on the site are poorly handicap accessible. For those wishing rather to stay at a hotel there is reasonably priced accommodation offered only 2,5 km away in Harjattula manor hotel (www.harjattula.fi).

The site opens at 7 pm on Friday and closes at noon on Sunday. Smoking is only allowed in designated areas. The site is discreetly damp.
