The following course has unfortunately had to be cancelled

The Maplesteads WEA Autumn 2021 Course begins on Monday 27th September 2021 with a free-of-charge first session starting at 6:30 pm.

The 7-week course, entitled Pop Music Culture 1945-1989, is being run by the popular lecturer Ted Woodgate.

The course examines how 20th Century popular music has influenced daily life, fashion, attitudes and language across the western world in the way that few other social developments have. However, was the music an instigator of these major social, economic and political changes or merely a reflection of a significant upheaval in society following World War II?



To find out more, come to an overview of the course, and take the opportunity to meet the tutor and other course members, at Great Maplestead Village Hall in Lucking Street, CO9 2RE at 6:30 pm on Monday 27th September 2021. Subsequent sessions start at 7:00 pm.

The initial session is free of charge and you are invited to enjoy some complimentary refreshments and be introduced to what is sure to be a most enlightening and interesting course, held in a friendly, informal atmosphere.

The fee for the full course is £55.30
