Branch News


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

on Tuesday mornings.

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 current course From Page to Screen - Adapting Literature for the Movies is now in full swing with tutor Stephen Poulter. Once again we have over 30 people in the class, including some first-time WEA attendees.


Following on from Graham Platt's wonderful Chaucer course last Spring, Sue, our wonderful social secretary, arranged a 'Chaucer walk' for us in April. Led by our knowledgeable guide, Tina, we visited many spots in and around the City of London associated with Chaucer and his pilgrims. Here we are outside Leadenhall Market

In April we held our end-of-term lunch at a local hostelry and were delighted to welcome tutor Graham Platt and his wife as our guests. This was a very social occasion enjoyed by the 35 attendees!

Our summer coffee mornings were very popular as usual and we were pleased to welcome our new tutor Stephen Poulter to the August event. Thanks to all who hosted for your hospitality.
