More than 50 courses will be on offer at The Guildford Institute in Ward Street this summer.

In addition to the usual offerings of art and photography classes, and science, history and language courses, new subjects such as furniture painting and family history will be introduced.

Throughout the summer months, the Institute will also be running a series of one-off workshops for anyone wanting to try something new or to brush-up on their skills – from drawing and painting workshops and social media sessions, to practical courses in yoga or the art of hand-tying a floral bouquet.

There will be a packed schedule of special events, group visits and a host of clubs and societies. As part of its regular Wednesday talks programme, local historian and Guildford Dragon NEWS writer David Rose will speak on Guildford’s Pubs and Breweries. At 2.45pm on Wednesday, April 26 he will look at some of the historic and interesting pubs in Guildford and the surrounding area. Guildford Institute’s Wednesday talks are free to attend, but places must be booked.

On Tuesday, July 11, to mark the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, the Institute will be running a coach trip to Chawton, to visit Jane Austen’s House Museum, to discover the house where she lived and wrote. This will be followed by a trip on the Watercress Line, where group members will enjoy the delights of travelling on a steam train.
