It's shit wifi and the mobile reception is poor to none. We're trying to encourage a #screenfree weekend and get immersed. This is a one off weekend. #techdetox
What will we eat?
We have a plan.
Do I need a towel/toiletries?
No mate. We're in a palace. It's all part of the package and part and parcel.
Is it a party?
YES! In whichever way you most like to party. We will have a separate ballroom for dancing, but if that's not your bag there is a big fireplace with sumptuous sofas and a grand piano. You could call it a retreat if you want. Saturday is the big night, where we'll all eat together and have a lovely time. :)
Can I bring a plus one/can I bring my gran?
Not at the moment, if this changes we’ll let you know.
What’s the dress code?
Bring your best hat.
But I mean, can I spend the whole weekend in pyjamas or my onesie?
Mate, OF COURSE! You can do what you want.
How is this all possible?
This event is gonna be subsidised by the Imps company to the tune of a few grand.
Can I come to just one night?
Yes. However, it will still cost the same.
Will transport be included, how will I get there?
The house is 15 minutes drive away from Tiverton Parkway Station. We will arrange transport details closer to the time. We will encourage car-sharing (or train buddies!) from London. Current Imps will get subsidised travel from Oxford.
I struggle with sleeping and need a quiet space, will there be one?
Yes! The Garden Wing is a 20 second walk outside with a separate entrance and is a little more detached for a quieter night.
I need a bit of space to recharge, is there one?
The house is enormous and full of sofas and nooks to snuggle in. If you need a bit of space to recoup rest assured there are plenty of spots for you away from the hullabaloo.
Do I need to bring a posh outfit?
Doesn't need to be posh, but bring something you feel special in for the Saturday night dinner.
Will everything be included, should I bring cash?
Food, booze and all entertainment is included. Mate, you don't need cash you're in a palace.
What’s the hashtag?
Suggestions so far include #oXVordimps #ImpsHeadRevisited and #ImpsImpsDevonTheStage
What if I don’t know all of the Imps?
None of us do! Maybe you're a sexy older Imp or a fresh spring chicken, everyone wants to know you because you're great.
Aren't I too old for this?
Yeah. You should probably stay at home with a kitkat... OF COURSE NOT. WE LOVE YOU THE MOST. Some of the young folk go to bed earlier than you. Don't worry about it. We are so so excited to see you. And if you like a quiet one, have you seen the size of the place?!!
I was only in the Imps for one term/year, can I still come?
YES. We can't wait to see you and we want you there.
Should I bring my imps top?
Don't you wear it all the time anyway?
Can I have a suggestion please?
Cucumber! Dentist! Spatula!
Are there any instruments there, should I bring my own?
A baby grand piano in the Great Hall, a honky tonk in the bar and 2 harpsichords in 2 of the bedrooms. Bring more instruments though! omg guys let's start a band.
Is this a networking opportunity?
How many Imps have there been, how many Imps will be there?

What ABOUT the nubes? You mean the ones auditioning in October? It's all fine. We'll make sure there is space for them and that they will be pumped. full. of. petrol. no sorry. dreams. I mean. Imp love. Imp love.
Can I help?
DEFFO. At the moment: Encourage other Imps to come along! Start making playlists! Make Imps bunting!
This is too expensive for me.
Please contact Archie Cornish, who is organising an anonymous fund via donations to subsidise Imps who may find the cost of the ball a bit of a stretch. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm a working proper person, can I help the younger Imps?
Please contact Archie Cornish, who is organising an anonymous fund to subsidise Imps in a tighter financial situation. If you would like to help, we suggest a donation of £30. email@example.com
Why are we in such a big house? Can't we stay somewhere crapper for less money?
Interestingly, to get a venue this size (with or without self catering), Huntsham was the cheapest practical option! The fact that it's fucking beautiful is a massive cherry on the cake.
Is there a helipad for me?
