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 class 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 Outreach Group is once again organising history courses for you at centres in the community. In October, we’ll be running courses at:

Canolfan y Bont, Pontardulais,

The National Waterfront Museum, Swansea,

Llangyfelach Church Hall, Llangyfelach,

Forge Fach, Clydach.

Take a look at the next page to discover what the courses will be about.


In the New Year we’ll have more courses again, and with a bit of luck the choice will be better with more lecturers and more topics at more venues. That’s our hope anyway.

Keep an eye on these pages for further information as it becomes available.


By the way, on Saturday 23 June at the National Waterfront Museum, we’re holding an Open Day to promote our history courses. On that day the October tutors will be delivering talks as tasters for their courses. If you’re interested in the Courses in the Community, come along to hear and meet the tutors. If you’re not interested in joining one (or more) of our fascinating and informative courses, you’ll still have the opportunity to listen to four entertaining talks, and enjoy some nibbles as well.

For more information about this event, take a look at our <Open Day> page.
