Maplesteads' WEA

WEA LogoThe WEA runs Spring and Autumn term adult education courses in Great Maplestead Village Hall.

The Maplesteads WEA Spring 2022 Course begins on Monday 10th January 2022 with a free-of-charge first session starting at 6:45 pm.

This course has now been cancelled due to the death of the lecturer.

The 7-week course, entitled The Victorian Mind, is being run by the popular lecturer and respected historian Simon Doney.

Victorian Britain experienced a most significant social, economic and political upheaval, transforming important ideas, beliefs and assumptions, challenging a cherished but anachronistic worldview and finding new answers to pressing issues of the day.

The course examines what effect these changes had on Victorian religion, social conscience, science and society, free trade and feminism during the course of Queen Victoria's reign.
