Glossop Lion 1847


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.

Corona virus: Update

Now that the Corona virus has (hopefully) subsided and Government guidance has been lifted we intend to build on  the success of our on-line Autumn 2021 and Spring 2022 programmes. We will be continuing to offer some courses using the Zoom internet app this autumn and are also planning to run a programme of venue based courses in Glossop from September2022. 

Maggie Mooney our course organiser is hard at work compiling the autumn term programme which will commence on 17th September 2022. As ever it promises to be both interesting and diverse and will include one or two new faces in our lecturing staff. Due to popular demand we will maintain a mix of online (Zoom) courses and venue courses based in Glossop. You can make an early booking NOW by selecting the appropriate course page.
