An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely

We have read through, in translation, Aeschylus’s Oresteia trilogy, and are moving on to glance at Sophocles’ Electra, then to read Euripides’s play of the same name. We plan to go on to read some further plays with characteristically strong female characters, and some plays based on other aspects of the Trojan War. At our last session, we welcomed a visitor able to share more detailed knowledge of the Greek theatre and dramatists, and able to give us some examples…

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating indefinitely

The Group’s focus is to share members’ interests in the culture of German-speaking countries, alongside discussing and enjoying the finer details of the language whilst advancing our speaking skills. This is a conversation and reading group rather than a teaching group and members should have a good knowledge of German, with experience of actually speaking the language, as well as enthusiasm to participate in discussions. We divide our meeting into two parts: Part One: The reading and discussion, in German,…

|Recurring Event (See all)

There is a limit to the number of possible players per session and our numbers can vary. Please send an email…

Recorder Consort

Fri 19 Aug @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Friday, repeating indefinitely

Usually, a recorder consort features playing pieces in four parts – descant/soprano; treble/alto; tenor; bass – but more or fewer instruments are often used and the most fun is to be gained by being able to play all of the instruments. Learning to handle recorders is not usually a problem for adults and it is a matter of learning where the notes are from fingering charts and practising how to co-ordinate breathing, tongueing and fingering. In this group a few…

Badminton

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:15 pm on Friday, repeating indefinitely

Philosophy for All

Mon 22 Aug @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Fourth of the month, repeating indefinitely

The group has been discussing issues in philosophy for over two years. Some members have followed Bryan Magee’s excellent The Story of Philosophy. However, this book does not cover the most recent phase of the English language and European philosophy, so the newly constituted group is starting to explore these recent ideas and hoping to find a book that will help us with focus and detail. Our own ideas are always in view. New members welcome.

An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Fourth of the month, repeating indefinitely

We are a Dutch conversation group, discussing a wide range of topics, rather than formal structured learning, so a basic level of Dutch is desirable.
