UPDATE ON O&A CLASSES FOR 2020/2021 Updated 10th July 2020


We have recently been informed that Union Chapel is not planning to re-open for any activities until September at the earliest. For this reason, due to the amount of planning and procedures required to ensure that the building is safe for all users, O&A classes will unfortunately not resume before January 2021.

The 2020/21 brochure is now ready. It will not be put on the O&A website until the end of July to allow tutors time to amend or adjust their course if they wish, taking into account that there will only be Spring and Summer terms in the coming academic year. The usual courses are on offer with two new or changed ones:

Modern Meditation, tutor Laura Bain (Fri. 1.30-2.30pm)
Local History, new tutor Chris Waters (Thurs. 10.30am-12.30pm), this year entitled ‘The Life and Times’.

Discussions are taking place about the way forward and we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed as to what is happening via the O&A website.



OPEN MORNING There will be no open morning this September. ENROL at first session, in the week beginning September 16th (unless for the two Arabic classes which begin on Mon and Tues 9th and 10th, also Spanish and perhaps other classes; you need to check with the tutor).

O&A is a Charity, established in 1991 as an independent initiative run by and for the community.

We provide courses for adults for education and leisure, with particular emphasis on providing/offering classes that are otherwise unavailable or affordable.

The teaching staff are a talented, creative and able group who present a wide range of classes.

The organisation is dependent on  enthusiastic and committed volunteers doing the administration and management work.

Information about the current classes can be obtained from the tabs on this website, or from the printed brochure below.
