    Further Notes

    • You don’t have to sign up for the whole year in advance and most people sign up for each term separately. Or you can book and pay any time before the course starts if that would work better for you – in this case please email us at info@wea-norwich.org.uk or ring Annette on 01603 629557 so we know you will be attending and we have an indication of numbers
    • Sorting out class lists and collecting fees is an important part of the WEA administration and it helps us a lot if you book as early as possible.
    • All payments for courses and day schools must be made on-line.  This facility is offered through our national website​ and you will be directed there when you select enrol online link.  If you prefer you may make your booking by telephone 0300 303 3464.
    • If after the first session of a course you decide it is not for you, we will be happy to refund your fee.  (This option is available after the first session only )
    • If a course is cancelled for any reason, we will inform you by email and/or by telephone and will refund your fees.
    • Please make sure we have your current contact details so we can inform you of any cancelled classes  (due to extreme weather for example).


    Norwich Branch courses
    On-line delivery Spring term 2021

    We are pleased to tell you that Norwich Branch WEA will  continue to offer a programme of short and longer on-line courses during the Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021.  Many of our wonderful tutors have undertaken professional training to develop their courses as inter-active and online.  For a preview of proposed course see under courses on this website.  

    Update on Learning with Norwich WEA during the Covid-19 pandemic

    I hope you have discovered that both National and Norwich Branch WEA courses continue to be offered online and there are a large range of courses available to join. These can be booked online or by telephone, and you will be able to receive them via zoom if you have a lap-top, a PC, a tablet or a smartphone. Courses will still be kept to a sociable level so that you will be able to chat  (virtually) to the tutor and fellow students. All the tutors have been specially trained to teach on-line in order to deliver interesting and engaging classes. 

    TO enrol- Note the course identification;  click here to  enrol on-line ; or call 0300 303 3464  Remember to have the course number and payment debit/credit card to hand.  The telephone line can be quite busy just before the start of a new term, so please be patient (or book early!)

    Look forward to seeing you - on screen - in the Spring


    More information about the 'traditional' WEA programme

    The Norwich Branch Committee has regretfully come to the decision to postpone all our face-to-face courses and day schools for Spring and Summer 2021.   It is our hope that the programme we planned - which is full of interesting and new learning - will be available the following academic year 2021/22.  The cancelled 2020 Summer Programme of courses, day schools, and visits, which we had hoped to run in 2021, will once again be deferred until all constraints on meeting inside have been resolved.

    Following ongoing discussion with Regional Office we have decided not to offer any face to face options;  if the situation changes we will be very pleased  to return to the Kings Centre and our usual sociable and enjoyable programme of courses and day schools.  we will keep you informed through this website.

    Meanwhile - the  Norwich Branch Committee would like to thank all of our students for their enthusiasm and loyalty over many years - and we very much look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future
