WELCOME TO BRIGHTLINGSEA WEA WEBPAGE

We are a friendly WEA group which meets at the Parish Hall, Brightlingsea CO7 0BP

We run two courses per year in the autumn and spring terms.

We also have social events such as a group lunch and summer coffee mornings.

Our next course is BRUNEL - AN ENGINEER'S LIFE with tutor Roger Mannion, starting on Tuesday 3rd October. Please see below for further details. The course is very popular and we currently have a waiting list but please do contact us if you'd like to be added to this list and for details of future courses.

Our previous course, HISTORY OF COLCHESTER PART 2 with popular local tutor Patrick Denney was well attended with a class of 28 and very much enjoyed by all. We gained a knowledge and understanding of some of the principal events and activities which have helped to shape the history and development of Colchester. Topics for discussion included the Plague, the Hythe, the Georgian Town, the Rag Trade, the Victorians, Edwardians and much more. The course also include a field trip in the form of a guided walking tour of Colchester - here we are with Patrick!
