The one day event is aimed at all adults interested in updating their skills and qualifications and those who are interested in pursuing leisure activities.

A variety of activities and events will be ongoing throughout the day to highlight the extraordinary variety of courses on offer at a number of learning sites across London including music, drama, tai chi and belly dancing. Siam Hurley will be making a special appearance and sharing her talented singing voice.
