Adult Learners Week 2012

It doesn't matter how old you are, you can still learn. Adult Learners Week took place 14-18th May in 2012 and it was a great success. Hackney hosted some great activities, all inspired by Hackney’s rich heritage – people, places, past and present.  See the What's On listings to find out about future events.
