Welcome to Riseley WEA

Riseley WEA is an adult educational organisation where we offer two sessions of lectures per year on a variety of cultural subjects - a Spring Term and an Autumn term.
With a history going back over thirty years, we have covered a wide variety of subjects, from history, architecture, music, art, film and many more.
All our lectures are delivered by tutors with extensive knowledge of their subjects and a great deal of experience in teaching interested and enthusiastic adults.
Everyone is welcome.

We meet in the comfort of Riseley Village Hall Lounge where we start each meeting with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee and biscuits.

Spring  2018

Our Spring 2018 course now running is:

 Arts and Crafts Gardens
by Andrew Sankey

A course of nine lectures exploring the revolutionary Arts and Crafts Movement  from William Morris and the Red House, to Vita Sackville-West and Sissinghurst Garden, showing how the movement  was extended into the garden and in doing so creating a unity of house and garden and leaving us some of Britain`s greatest gardens.
