Short Courses

Going to a class for pleasure is a great way to meet new people and find a new interest in a friendly and informal atmosphere. We offer a wide range of courses including, language courses, computer skills courses, pottery, floristry, counselling and many more.

Our courses are very popular so we advise you to book early to avoid disappointment. The successful running of courses is dependent on a minimum number of enrolments, if numbers are not met the course will not run but you will be notified in advance. 

You can normally pay and book a place on an evening short course up until 5pm of the first day of the course. For daytime courses, you can mostly pay until the night before the course.  You can book on 2021 Christmas courses until the end of November.
