March is here. Spring is on its way.
Fact: The name March comes from Ancient Rome, when March was the first month of the year and named Martius after Mars or Ares, the Greek god of war. In Rome, March was the first month of spring, a logical point for the beginning of the year as well as the start of the military campaign season. January became the first month of the calendar year either under King Numa Pompilius (c.713 BC) or under the Decemvirs about 450 BC (Roman writers differ). The numbered year began on March 1 in Russia until the end of the 15th century. Great Britain and its colonies continued to use March 25 until 1752, which was when they ultimately adopted the Gregorian calendar. Many other cultures and religions still celebrate the beginning of the New Year in March.
Our English Language School in Bristol is giving its students the opportunity to play more sports. Every week, students will be able to play badminton, football and enjoy laser tag or indoor climbing.
Plus on Wednesday 13th March we are organising a SALSA DANCE NIGHT at the Slug & Lettuce pub. Beginner or advanced salsa dancers, this is a great opportunity for you to have a rhytmic evening.
