Workers Educational Association Courses are now starting in Lewes

The WEA runs over 1,400 courses each year in the South East of England, attracting over 15,000 enrolments. They operate across the whole of the region – in the densely populated urban centres, in the rural areas and along the south coastal strip.

From September, the Lewes branch is running courses on such topics as art, politics and the human and built environment, all at town centre locations.

Pre-booking for classes is essential, and can be done online, by phone, or post.

  1. Louise SIMKISS-Day says

    The South Downs can mean many things to many people; farmers see them as areas to stock sheep, grow grain and increasingly plant vines. Urban dwellers see them as ‘green lungs’, somewhere to escape the turmoil and strain of city life. Naturalists see close-cropped turf and beech woods, sports people toil the South Downs Way in training runs and photographers delight in the clean air and far horizons. Archaeologists see some of the earliest inhabited sites in the county history and geographers note particular human settlement patterns, while industrial historians observe windmill sites and lime kilns. The South Downs are a backdrop to a hundred human activities past and present and in this course we will look at some of this variety to better understand this unique landscape. We will also consider the difference between the South Downs and the South Downs National Park.
