Take a course at the School of Life

Your author recently finished a weekly course at the School of Life in Bloomsbury. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and is very much recommended.

The School of Life, on Marchmont Road, WC1, is a 'social enterprise offering good ideas for everyday living' and the six week course was on the subject of play and covered a wide range of topics and items about how to make the most of your spare time, including a group singing lesson by a professional songwriter and a talk on Guerilla Gardening by the South London author of On Guerilla Gardening, Richard Reynolds. The course is vaguely philosophical but is mostly based on group discussion and there is no need to do a huge amount of reading etc. to take part.

The School of Life runs a number of courses based around the themes of Love, Politics, Work, Play and Family. There are also a range of lectures, books, talks and even holidays on offer.

In your author's humble opinion, The School of Life is a valuable addition to life in London and the Play Course is an excellent reflection of the School’s work. The subject matter was thought-provoking, whilst maintaining a sense of fun which is necessary to keep a group engaged on a weekday night.

The next Play course starts on Tuesday 21st April and runs from 7pm - 9.30pm for six weeks until 26 May. The next course is led by the very intelligent Cathy Haynes. The six week course costs £195, or £145 if you sign up with a friend.
