Foundation Philosophy
Wisdom and Meditation

Tuesday 9th January for 10 weeks

At St John's Choir Room, Cathedral Square, Peterborough.

This 10-week course uses Philosophy to put life into focus. It starts from that which unites human beings. 

Philosophy is the love of wisdom

Wisdom it the understanding that leads to happiness and harmony.

So this is a good place to go if happiness is what you want and lasting happiness at that.

This course gives the philosophical tools necessary to achieve that aim.

It is a deeply practical course and is open and accessible to everyone irrespective of background.

Looking forward to seeing you there

Saturday Morning Economics

Offshore and its Discontents

Economic injustice has crept into the global financial landscape and distorted our economy so that for increasing numbers of people, freedom and prosperity have become more elusive.


This five week course will trace some of the developments that have allowed this to happen.


The examples considered will take us to many different places around the world, emphasising how increasingly interconnected economic and financial
affairs have become; a fact which presents its own challenges in seeking remedies.
No previous knowledge of economics is necessary.

Plato Study Group


We meet informally at the Orchard Tea Gardens at Grantchester on Tuesday afternoons, from 2.30-4.00 pm. We will be studying one of the dialogues of Plato, who has been called the ‘father of western philosophy’.  Anybody is welcome to join us. No previous acquaintance with Plato is necessary. There is no charge although people are encouraged to purchase refreshments at the Orchard.

The first meeting next term will be in spring 2022
