Something for everyone

Discover new activities this year at Marlborough College Summer School

Now celebrating its 43rd year, Marlborough College Summer School will take place from 9 July to 5 August 2017 and host an amazing array of more than 500 courses.

The popularity of Summer School is undoubtedly underpinned by the phrase 'something for everyone'. Catering for students from three years old through to 90 years young, it is this blend spanning the generations and accommodating all combinations of family groups and individuals that creates a unique holiday atmosphere in the prestigious setting of Marlborough College in Wiltshire.

The eclectic course programme of art, culture and sport is refreshed and developed annually, and this year is no exception. Traditional favourites will run alongside a wide range of inspiring new titles including Willow Animal Sculpture, Creative Felt Making, Performing Victorian Music Hall, Iyengar Yoga, Low Maintenance Gardening and even Wine and Cheese Matching!

For students wishing to really make the most of their time at Summer School, booking a stay in one of the college boarding houses is thoroughly recommended. The college's historic grounds are conveniently located to enjoy Marlborough's famous high street and the beautiful local countryside. Plus, as a resident you can take advantage of the excellent cuisine on offer and free admission to all the lectures, recitals and entertainments.

Gala performances take place every Tuesday and Friday evening and this year's superb line-up features an evening with ann Widdecombe, llyria's outdoor production of the Lost World, the overtures musical tribute to the 1960s and much more.
