Lifelong Learners Week

September 10th - 14th

Are you looking for something a bit different to learn about but dont want to commit to a full course? Then this may be your opportunity to try something new. You are never too old to learn and we are actively encouraging a more senior audience to participate in our talks/workshops throughout the week.

The different topics will have different elements to them and may even include practical activities. It is anticipated that each session will be about 1 hour long and there will be 2 sessions per day one at 11am and one at 2pm.

As yet to be confirmed but will include talks and/or demonstrations on the following topics:

The archives held here at The Observatory, including being able to look at and explore the artefacts.

The History of the Royal Greenwich Observatory at Herstmonceux.

Upcycling with demonstrations and ideas.

Stereoscopic images: a chance to look at and hear about a fabulous collection of stereoscopic cards.

Barn owls in the garden: a chance to share the experiences in photos and video about a pair of barn owls raising their family in a country cottage garden.
