New courses will launch this week
New courses are being run in Keighley by the Workers’ Educational Association.
British Politics 1814-1914 will examine who had power and influence during the period, and how those who didn’t tried to effect change in order to get a voice.
Subjects covered include the Chartists, Reform Acts, the trade union movement, the suffragettes and Irish home rule.
The ten-week course is at Riddlesden Institute in Scott Lane, between 1pm and 3pm starting on Tuesday, or at the Quaker Meeting House in Strawberry Street, between 7pm and 9pm from Wednesday.
Extending Family Trees, a ten-session course starting on Wednesday, will include pre-1837 genealogy sources – what records were created and how to read them. There will be plenty of materials for family historians.
The 10.15am sessions are at the Quaker Meeting House. Tutor is Jackie Depelle.
Fees are £63 for both courses, but are waived for people on some means-tested benefits.
Contact Catherine Barker on (01535) 274984 or email@example.com for further information about both sessions.
