Located within the heart of the town, the Guildford Institute is a charity committed to providing educational and cultural activities in a social atmosphere.

Whether you want to attend a 10-week course, go to a free music recital on a Tuesday evening, or even have a brief look round an exhibition by a local artist, the institute aims to offer something for everyone this summer.

Due to popular demand, the institute has expanded its summer school sessions this year: a series of one-off workshops, including a wide variety of practical drawing and painting courses, will be available until the end of August.

Nicholas will offer a politics and international affairs course titled Afghanistan: A Land Easy to March Into, Hard to March Out Of and a statistics course, Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics, which will look at the use and misuse of numbers in today’s world.   

One further highlight this term is the Summer Special Event – a light-hearted introduction to The Hogs Back Brewery, based at Tongham. Those who attend will be able to sample some of the brewery’s best-known ales and will have the chance to win some of its products.

The institute’s ongoing spring term programme has proven very popular and while nearing its end, still has upcoming music recitals, exhibitions and a variety of courses to offer.
