Welcome to the Summer Programme 2009
Come and join us for one or two weeks of relaxation and activity, learning and
creativity, enjoyment and friendship – a holiday with a real difference. While
many people attend as residents, staying in our superior student residences,
you are equally welcome to attend on a daily basis.
Wide choice of courses
The wide choice of courses includes arts, crafts, writing, music, walking,
history, literature, sports, hobbies, languages and much more. There are
many exciting new activities this year including North West Gourmet Tour,
Parapsychology and Haunted Houses, Botanic Illustration, Walking the Wainwrights, Indian textiles – and
Many of our courses, such as architecture, archaeology, ecology and the environment, and discovering the
churches, will take you out and about in the area around Lancaster and the Lake District.
It is not only your days which are filled with interest and activity on the Summer Programme – each evening
a free programme of social activities is open to you. There will be plenty to do and plenty of choice.
All social events are included in your course fee. All course participants are welcome to attend these events,
whether or not you are staying on campus.
Evening events include: Salsa dancing, wine tasting, African drumming workshop, country drive, debate,
slideshow, concert, film, play reading, guided walks around historic Lancaster and amazing Morecambe, as
well as along the canal to a nearby traditional pub.
Fun for children and young people too!
Activities for children and young people combine action-packed days on campus with trips to local
attractions. There is also a separately organised and supervised social programme for children and young
people, so that you and your children can each enjoy your own interests during the evenings. We run it till
8.30pm for the under 11s and 10pm for those up to 14 years.
The Lancaster Experience
Here at Lancaster we are renowned for the warmth of our welcome, the quality of the courses and the
enthusiasm of the tutors. The welcome starts as soon as you arrive (including being transported from the
railway station on Sunday or having your bags carried from your car). Summer Programme staff are always
available to help, advise or deal with requests and problems. Nothing is too much trouble and each year
customers commend the staff for their efficiency, courtesy and friendliness.

Get it more often
By using all the methods of transport available to us in a sensible manner we can help to reduce the
congestion on our roads. We all know how easy it is to fall into the trap of using the car for every journey.
The concept of it has been developed by Lancashire County Council to reinforce the TravelWise
it is a programme that encourages people to make better use of cars and promotes the use of public
transport, cycling and walking. Why not think before you use your car? For some journeys it may be
essential to use a car. However for others, you might be able to use public transport, cycle or walk.
Look out for advertising on the sides of local buses and on posters at bus shelters – ‘Take it more
often!’ So keep your eyes open!
Walking has many health benefits, and can also generate an overall feeling of well being, relax you and
stimulate your thinking.
In heavy traffic jams, the air quality inside a car can be poorer than outside. Car users suffer up to 3
times more pollution than pedestrians. Walking reduces traffic congestion. 25% of car trips are less than
2 miles and the majority of trips under one mile are on foot, but the proportion is gradually decreasing as
more people take to their cars for short trips. The consequence is ever more local congestion, and ever
more challenging conditions for walking.
Join in with one of the lunchtime walks led by rangers from Lancaster County Council’s Countryside
Service which will be happening every Tuesday. So why not take a break, take part and keep fit? See Be
Part of It for further details.
“Lift sharing” “ride sharing” “car sharing” or “car pooling” – all come down to the same thing – two or
more people sharing a car to get them from A to B rather than driving alone. The benefits are numerous
both for yourself, your family, your community and the environment.
Many companies in the area already encourage workers to car share – if everyone who drives on their
own to work every day was to share a lift with someone just once a week, the commuting car journeys
would be reduced by 25%.
