Classics Events

For the most complete on-line calendar of Classical events in the UK visit the ARLT Calendar.

Classical events of interest to teachers and pupils take place in Britain all the time. Examples are:

Lectures for pupils and teachers

  • Contact your nearest university Classics department. They may run Sixth Form study days in the universities. They will probably be eager to send a lecturer to your school to speak on the subject of your choice if you pay expenses.

  • Contact JACT, the Joint Association of Classics Teachers. Local branches like LACT, the London Association, and BACT, the Bristol Association, run useful events.

  • I have put a list of 2005 local Classical Association events here. Contact the Classical Association here.

  • Sovereign Education Ltd, Broadclough Hall, Burnley Rd, Bacup, Lancs OL13 8PA, Tel: (01706) 878973. Fax: (01706) 876634, run days of lectures as a commercial enterprise.

Longer Courses

  • JACT runs a Latin Summer School, a Greek Summer School, and a Classical Civilisation Summer School for pupils, as well as INSET days for teachers.

  • ARLT, the Association for Latin Teaching, runs an INSET day in March and a Summer School for teachers.

  • The Classical Association Annual Meeting is a residential occasion lasting around three days.

  • Details of Summer Schools for pupils are listed by the Joint Association of Classics Teachers here, and for teachers here.

Greek Plays

  • Other productions are advertised to JACT members in the association's publications. It is well worth while for any Classics teacher to join this organisation.
  • Some events are advertised on the ARLT website, along with other classical news.
