Glossop Lion 1847

In light of the clear advice set out by Government, the Guild has regrettably, decided that we should cancel Guild communal events for the time being. After the success of our on-line Summer and Autumn programmes we are continuing to offer our courses using the internet.

Coronavirus: Update
Spring Programme 2021 - Now Taking Bookings

The Autumn Term programme has been very well received and achieved very encouraging numbers of attendees.  It is unlikely that it will be possible to hold in-person courses for the remainder of this year or even in the early part of next year. We are of course being guided by the British Government's advice regarding the safety of our members and visitors. For this reason we have again planned the Spring Term programme around the Zoom on-line App  (If current circumstances regarding Coronavirus change we will of course consider running a limited programme of courses in person as before.).

Despite the disruption caused by Covid19 we have been able to offer you 13 courses starting in January which look to be both stimulating and educational. Subjects range from classical music, Italian film, art, military history, feminism, engineering and more. Hopefully there is something to interest everyone. For more details go to the Spring Term page.

The Glossop Guild was formed in 2009 to promote liberal education in and around the town.


Glossop is a former mill town at the northern end of the Peak District National Park in the United Kingdom. The Guild is a non-profit organisation which endeavours to promote a wide range of courses, all of which we provide for the interests and enlightenment of participants. The Guild aims to select tutors on the basis of their ability to present lively and challenging courses, as well as for their expertise and experience. Members and participants are encouraged to contribute their own views and engage in informative discussion. All courses are open to both members and non-members.
