Adult Learning

Whether it’s learning a traditional craft or attending a specialist talk, taking part in a study session or popping along to one of our drop-in activities, taking part in a reminiscence session or working on an arts project, we have a range of opportunities for adults to learn more about the past, its relevance to the present and its potential to inform the future.
