Learning

Courses at Kennaway House

One of our main visions for Kennaway House is that it becomes a centre for adult and community learning, providing opportunities to be creative, to discover more about our region and history, and to develop old interests and exploring new ones.

We would be very interested to hear from tutors with ideas for courses.

Course prices may vary depending on the size of room choice. The average rate for first floor classes is £30 per session.
