Explore Lifelong Learning


Lifelong Learning in the North East- try ‘Explore’

‘Explore’ is a radical and revolutionary vision of what Lifelong Learning can be: accessible and flexible, democratic and participative, innovative and challenging. Learning for the love of learning – covering art, literature, history and science - all delivered by professional, expert tutors. Its model is co-operative; members of Explore pay a flat subscription, which finances a varied programme mingling courses, typically of 5 or 7 weeks, and several series of single talks from individual speakers, often linked by a theme. Members then attend as many of these as they wish. There is a choice of sessions every day of the week except Sunday; and as one subscription covers everything, it is easy to try new subjects. It is stimulating, it can be challenging, it is often highly entertaining; and it is always very companionable.

‘Explore’ is based in Commercial Union House, Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, and most sessions take place there.
