P020      Poetry for Pleasure - Anne Ingleby

Methodist Mission
Tuesday 10.00 - 12.00

We will look at a wide variety of poems in different forms and on many themes. We hope to cover some familiar pieces and some which are less well known. The emphasis will be on enjoying the poems rather than learning about the theory of poetry. Informal discussion is encouraged. Because of the advanced level at which we are now working, any new student should check with the tutor on 01484 852438 before enrolling. An additional charge of £1 per term will be levied to help cover the cost of materials. This will be collected by the tutor at the start of the term.

P022      Writing and Enjoying Poetry - Doris Corti

Friday - 10.30 - 12.30

New students welcome. The workshops involved are enjoyable and at an advanced level, any new student might like to contact the tutor about these at This email address is being protected from spambots.

P031 - Shakespeare

Jubilee Centre
Wednesday 2.00 - 4.00

This course will again explore Shakespeare's theatre and the historical and cultural context that form the backdrop for his work. Through practical workshops  to explore the language and  dramatic ideas in the plays and watching recorded performances from stage and cinema  we will continue to investigate the extraordinary depth and variety of Shakespeare's theatre. We will again study four plays probably including Othello, Twelfth Night and Richard III. Something on the sonnets too? New members most welcome.
