Two new series this term 

  • ‘Aldeburgh Conversations’ – Using the principle of disagreeing agreeably, this is your chance to join in roundtable discussions about current topics and political issues. Initially, there will be two to test the water and each will have a different starting point for you to get your teeth into. 

  • ‘Engaging with Issues Facing Britain and Beyond’ – Five fortnightly sessions each with a keynote speaker on a topic of significance. This term, consideration will be given to issues such as the state of the union (both UK and US) with Lynne Walker and insights into the situation in Russia from recent resident, Colin Ward. 


And new courses  

Kate Drayton, who ran a successful taster session in the spring and will now consider ‘Men Behaving Badly in Women’s Writing’. Colin Ward will also be tackling the difficult matter of coping with loss, as he looks at how other people’s writings can help us through.
