Please note that these events have passed and unfortunately they are not being repeated this year.
Bolton Museum, Aquarium and Archive is holding a series of workshops for the over 50s.
The summer school forms part of the council’s Active Ageing project, designed to promote a longer, happier and healthier life for the borough’s older residents.
Taster courses held at the museum will help to bring like-minded people together and help to broaden their horizons.
The first session takes place from 10am to noon on Wednesday, June 16, with a tour of the museum’s Egyptology collection led by the Curator of Egyptology, Carolyn Routledge.
On Thursday, June 17, from 10am to noon, there will be a guided walk and talk about local natural history with Curator Don Stenhouse at Smithills Hall.
Finally, Julie Lamara, Local Studies Librarian, will provide an in-depth look at local studies and history materials at Bolton Museum, between 10am and noon on Friday, June 18.
The summer school runs all week and also includes a variety of taster sessions at Brownlow Fold and Westhoughton Community Learning Centres.
Sessions are free and supported by the Skills Funding Agency and Bolton College.
