WHAT IS THE WEA IN HOLBROOK?

 

We are now a small and diminishing group of volunteers who provide a series of courses and one-off lectures/presentations/field trips on a wide range of subjects; we are affiliated to the National Organisation (wea.org.uk). The WEA has been operating in Holbrook for more than 40 years.

 

Holbrook WEA is now a Student Group. A few volunteers help with setting up the venue, providing refreshments and assist with suggesting and advertising events and courses.  The administration of the Group, including bookings, is organised centrally and by the local WEA Office in Derby.

 

WHAT SUBJECTS HAVE WE COVERED?

 

Local History - Holbrook & Derbyshire                                          Music & Art - Literature

Buildings - Churches & Houses                                                    Cinema & Films

British History - Stone Age to the Romans                                   Geology of Derbyshire

Classical History - Military History                                                 And many more!

 

 

Attendance at our courses has decreased, more than half our attendees come from outside the village of Holbrook.

 

We need:

- ideas for course subjects - daytime or evening

- volunteers to help organise

- attendees at courses and lectures/presentations
