Centre for Lifelong Learning Daytime programme


Gift vouchers are now available - contact the Centre for find out more. 

The Daytime Programme provides the opportunity to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment with expert tutors and is grounded in the philosophy of embracing new ideas, skills and challenges regardless of previous experience or indeed age.

With over 300 classes to choose from, and more than 2,000 students taking part each year, our Daytime Programme is the largest in the UK aimed specifically at those aged over 50. 

Students repeatedly feed back that as well as learning something new they also value the social dynamic within classes and many lasting friendships are formed over a coffee in one of our social areas.

Whether you only have a couple of hours to spare or wish to come along more frequently, by taking several classes or joining our vibrant Learning in Later Life Students’ Association, there is something for everyone.

Subject areas include:

  • art & photography
  • creative writing
  • genealogy
  • history
  • psychology and sociology
  • IT & technology
  • languages
  • music
  • science
  • wine well as many more.
