We’re pleased to announce that registrations are now open for our sixth annual Spring into Summer programme. This year we are offering a number of FREE events, as well as courses and workshops in the areas of creative writing, film, languages and literature. The programme will be delivered by staff from the Lifelong Learning Centre, elsewhere in the University and guest speakers from other universities.
We are especially pleased to be offering a series of seminars on topical issues such as Brexit and the challenges of political leadership. Following on from previous years’ successful First World War commemoration events we will also be hosting an event exploring the fate of German and British ‘enemy aliens’ during the First World War.
Did you know that Tuesday 21st June is Canada’s National Aboriginal Day? We will be discussing its significance and exploring the representation of North American Natives with experts from the Leeds Centre for Canadian Studies and their guests.
Publicity for the programme is being distributed widely, in libraries, community centres, sports centres, shops, cafes and pubs throughout Leeds and West Yorkshire. We are also using email, Twitter and Facebook to get the word out. We have done our very best to make our programme as affordable as possible and would really appreciate any help you can give us publicising it, either by taking promotional materials to distribute in your local area or by posting on social media.
Places on the events and programmes are filling up quickly so if you are tempted do book your place soon!
