Courses and Clubs at Kennaway House
One of our main visions for Kennaway House is that it becomes a centre for adult and community learning, providing opportunities to be creative, to discover more about our region and history, to develop old interests and explore new ones.
We would be very interested to hear from tutors with ideas for courses.
Course prices may vary depending on the size of room choice. The average rate for first floor classes is £30 per session.
