    Default formal way to say: "Itīs going to be at a place"

    Hi, all of you. I want to know how can I use in a formal way the expression, "Itīs going to be at a place called Hathaway".
    And taking advantage of the mail, I want to know in what way can I use the expression "in order to".
    Thank very much for your help.
    Regards.

    I'll answer your first question.

    Ex: It will be held at Hathaway.

    The formal word for the place where something occurs is "venue" - though (especially difficult to remember if you speak French) you have to put the stress on the first syllable: /'venju:/. So 'The venue is [or "will be"] Hathaway'.

    And I don't see what the mail has to do with your second question; 'in order to' expresses purpose - in any context (even spoken): "I always wear my lucky socks to interviews, in order to have a better chance" (and I've no idea where that idea came from )

    PS Our postings coincided. Of course, Soup's suggestion is fine. 'Venue' is pretty formal in most cases - although strangely pop concerts seem to be an exception. 'They played at venues all over the country from church halls to converted cinemas, with all their gear carried between gigs in a Ford Transit driven in turns by the three boys old enough to have a license' ; in this case, colloquial usage seems to have borrowed from the formal usage of the concert promoters.
