Come and join us for the latest instalment of this ever-popular course, where you will be taken back in time to the early 20th Century to learn about the Golden Age of Hollywood! 

You will see many famous movie clips containing the biggest stars of the silver screen, such as Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth and Humphrey Bogart to name but a few.  You will learn how these superstars were controlled by the big powerful Studios, including MGM, Paramount, Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox and how they were able to make or break the actors careers, should the stars step out of line!

Delivered by two of our fab volunteers who have a huge passion for this subject, this fun four-week course provides the chance to learn, relax and escape from the stresses and strains of daily life.  This course is suitable for all learners, whether you have previously attended a Golden Age of Hollywood course or not.

Please be aware that this course is extremely popular and places fill up quickly so book now to avoid disappointment! Oh, and popcorn is provided!
