WEA Southgate & Enfield will be relaunching face-to-face courses in September. They're currently busy planning the courses that will start then and ensuring that the local venues - Enfield Baptist Church and Palmers Green United Reformed Church - will be safe. The first three courses deal with the history of ideas; the social and political history of English gardens; and poems written about particular paintings. There will also be new online courses, dealing with key artworks, fashion in Tudor and Stuart England, and American independent film makers of the past 30 years.
