Pop-up Groups

One-off talks will be offered across the term.

If you are willing to give such a talk, or can recommend another, please contact Michael.

The next pop-ups are;

Tuesday 29 November at 12.30PM Kemp Town Crypt (Martin Jones – War Memorials)

Chair Yoga

This involves a number of straightforward yoga exercises for those who need to strengthen and/or loosen a range of muscles in a more supportive way. If you have mobility or balance problems, this could be for you.

Sessions will be on Thursday afternoons at Brighton Unitarian Church.

Understanding American Politics

To what extent is the USA a democracy? We will look at the interplay between conflicting party-political philosophies and their ‘use’ of Christianity to serve party-political aims.

Introducing Tablet Computers

’This group will pay special attention to Apple iPads and Android O S Tablets and will be suitable for beginners’

The group will meet weekly from September at the Convenors home.

Numbers are limited, so apply as soon as possible.

Play Reading

Members of the group will be assigned a part at the beginning of the 90 minute session: with the agreement of group members this may be shuffled about halfway through.

There is a vast collection of titles to consider and I imagine we will concentrate on plays for which the text is crucial; Shaw, Wilde, Ayckbourn, etc.

Suggestions for plays to be read will be welcome. The group will be limited to about 12 members, and occasional absence is acceptable.

All-comers are welcome to join the Ukulele group – no experience necessary!
We will start with learning a few simple chords and rhythms and use them to play and sing songs.  After we’ve mastered the basics we may increase the level of difficulty but unlikely to rival the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

German Improvers

We follow a coursebook, though not slavishly, for the basics of vocabulary and grammar.

There will also be regular diversions into various aspects of national life. The accent is on Lernen mit Spaß

Green Conversation

A chance for members to share their thoughts about environmental issues and climate change.

For members not able to attend, you can join using zoom by contacting the convenor.

Sunday Lunch Group 2

Meeting at various restaurants, pubs or hotels, accessible by bus. Members decide where to go each time.
