A distinct feature of the 2004 UHS Annual Conference was the addition of a cultural evening. It turned out to be grand occasion. It consisted of three elements. First, Ms Janet Oromafuru Eruvbetere, a London-based lawyer, gave an important and informative lecture on changing patterns of marriage in Urhobo culture. Second, Professor Michael Nabofa, from the University of Ibadan, gave a stimulating lecture on the origins and programmes of Igbe, a 19th century religious movement in Urhoboland. Third, the cultural evening was brought to a delightful treatment of the dance rituals of Igbe religion.
