Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

 

Weekend courses

Our courses are designed to inspire and encourage further study for personal enrichment. With topics ranging from magic swords in Literature to the future of electronics, these courses offer something for everyone. A typical weekend begins with a relaxed dinner on the Friday evening, followed by the first teaching session. You then have an opportunity to unwind and meet other students, before heading off to bed. Teaching recommences the next day after one of Madingley Hall's award-winning breakfasts. Sessions include breaks to allow for conversation and discussion over refreshments. On Saturdays there is time to explore the beautiful landscaped grounds. Saturday lunch is a served buffet. The evening meal is at 6.30pm, followed by an evening session at 8pm. On Sunday, the weekend ends with a served buffet lunch.
