Due to very popular demand, the Greek Super Learning Days for the 2016/17 academic year are now fully booked.

We are working hard to investigate if we can offer any further dates or any further ancient Greek activities this year.

In the meantime, you might want to consider the ‘Greeks’ session offered by our partner up the road, Manchester Art Gallery.
