The Branch’s contribution to the Life-Long Learning experience

The Historical Association is committed to adult learning and promoting history at all levels. Our courses are a brilliant way to learn about a new topic or to meet people similarly interested in history. All of the classes are taught by experienced tutors, knowledgeable in their subject, and group discussion is very much encouraged.


Courses in the Community



Our Courses in the Community have become very popular over the past few years and the Outclass Learning Group has once again organised history courses for you at various community venues. Our Outclass Tutors are:











In the 2019-20 year we ran courses at:

Canolfan y Bont, Pontardulais,

The National Waterfront Museum, Swansea,

Llangyfelach Church Hall,

Outdoor Bowls Club, Carmarthen,

Forge Fach, Clydach.


Each lecture lasts for 2 hours (with a break halfway through). The courses are delivered in a friendly yet informative manner and discussion is welcomed. There are no essays to write.


We’re hoping to resume our Outclass Courses programme in October 2021.
