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 nearly twenty seven 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.
The Plant Hunters
Ten lectures investigating the lives and travels of men who forded rivers, climbed mountains, faced danger and even death to bring wondrous plants back to Britain from around the globe. The Tradescants, Joseph Banks and 'Chinese' Wilson will feature together with three other great plant hunters.
