Marlborough College Summer School is celebrating its 42nd year in 2016 and this year will run from 10th July – 6th August.
The long term success of Marlborough College Summer School has evolved from the steady improvement of facilities, the unusually wide range of courses, entertainments and the fantastic atmosphere – all of which have enhanced the quality of the overall customer experience.
The ever-changing course programme is refreshed and developed annually and this year is no exception with many tutors offering a wide range of new titles to run alongside traditional favourites. This year, there are a record 600 courses with an array of new subjects available, these include a Get Fit Bootcamp, an Adult Rock School, a Stone Age Arrow Workshop, even Politics and Religion with Wasps and Frogs! 2016 sees the first courses run in Spain, with a birdwatching course in April and a watercolour course in September, both in the beautiful surroundings of Andalucía.
A popular feature of the School is the Summer School bar. Situated in the Marquee it offers refreshments at lunchtime and during the evening and it’s an ideal place to meet friends, have a drink and discuss your day, while enjoying the wide variety of entertainments on offer.
The Summer School team has been busy compiling the entertainment programme for you. The Gala performances, which take place every Tuesday and Friday, include An Evening with Michael Palin, Illyria’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Collabro and much more. This year, they have also teamed up with the Marlborough Jazz Festival to bring you a performance by one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed jazz singers, Natalie Williams. In addition, there are lots of popular daily lectures and recitals to enjoy too.
The School continues to be an eclectic combination of art, culture and sport for adults, whilst the children’s programme is packed full of inspirational activities. The experience is truly all encompassing with ‘Something for Everyone’. For more information, visit the website.
