Ageing Creatively Classes for over 55s in West Berkshire Spring/Summer 2024

The Corn Exchange’s Ageing Creatively Programme is forever growing, venturing new activity in Mortimer and Lambourn as well as workshops throughout the week at the Corn Exchange and our Learning Centre in Newbury. There is something for everyone – you don’t need any experience or specific skills, everybody is welcome! Or get in touch with your creative side and develop your skills even further.  Don’t forget to pop into the Corn Exchange on Thursday and join us for a coffee as part of our weekly Coffee Companions session.

All information is on our website, but if you would like to find out more about what we have on offer across West Berkshire, or if you would like to discuss an idea for a session, please email: Eliza Young, Ageing Creatively Rural Agent, elizay@cornexchangenew.co.uk

We are always looking for volunteers to help and participate at these classes so please do email if you are interested.
