At the Parkes Institute we offer a range of adult education opportunities, study days and public events designed to provide positive and engaging learning experiences for the wider community. We have special partnerships with the Council of Christians and Jews, JW3, the Sir Martin Gilbert Centre and many more.

We hold study days on-campus through Lifelong Learning as well as hosted by community groups off-campus. Our study days are held on alternate Saturdays and Sundays so as to take account of the faith commitments of some of those who wish to participate.

We hope that you will find the study days and public events that we are hosting this year of interest, and we very much look forward to welcoming you at our events.

Look out for our Tuesday seminars too!

I just wanted to say many thanks for such a stimulating conference today. The presentations were most interesting, the topics well chosen and varied, the chance to talk in the breaks was appreciated, and the whole organisation, from the inclusive layout of the room to the very welcome refreshments, was all very well arranged thank you. So, please pass on my thanks to all the people involved in giving us such a memorable and thought provoking day.
