Holbrook Student Group



Updated:  10 November 2019

News and Events - 2019



We held the AGM for the WEA Holbrook Branch on 6th March 2018 and decided to continue with WEA activities in Holbrook through becoming a Student Group. This is a more informal arrangement than a Branch, run by a team of volunteers with the administration of the Group being organised centrally and by the local WEA Office in Derby.


We currently have 8 Student Group Volunteers - athough it would be good to have more Holbrook residents to maintain a local focus.  Please contact the Group via if you are interested in helping and providing ideas for new courses - you can commit as much or as little time as you wish.  We are keen to put on events and courses that appeal to a variety of adult age groups.





















List of Upcoming Events and Courses for 2020


Two series of short courses on film with David Leicester are being arranged – starting with ‘Film Noir and Crime'. David is an excellent speaker with considerable knowledge and enthusiasm for cinema. He provides the introductory talk at Quad in Derby every week for their mid-week treat event.
