What's on

Forest of Mercia CIC provide a variety of courses for people of all ages and abilities. 

As we are a Community Interest Company we try to keep our course fees low so they are accessible to as many people as possible.

We are able to do this with the help of external funding from Community Learning and BBC Children In Need. So on some courses you may be required to fill out a form to help us prove your attendance. 

Any profits made go straight back into the business so we can continue the great work that we do. 

All our upcoming courses and events are advertised on our Eventbrite and Facebook pages.
