Here are some pictures of Margate Adult Education Centre.   The Margate Adult Education Centre is right in the town centre, on the corner of Hawley Square (a pretty Georgian-period Square with some lovely old trees on the green).

I teach Life Drawing here on Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings. I also teach a few all-day sessions here and people come from as far away as London and Essex to come to them. I love it, and I love teaching in this building. It was built in 1929 and was opened, as ‘The Thanet School of Art’, in 1931. It became an Adult Education Centre (known then as ‘Hilderstone’) in the 1970s and has been used for Kent Adult Education classes ever since.

Life Drawing has been practiced in this very same ‘Life Room’ for more than 80 years!

Hardly anyone knows about the place.

I’ve posted some more pictures of the place on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Roy-Eastland/1495390357351370?ref=hl

Anyone interested in coming along should contact the centre (03000414018) or go to the Thanet section of the Kent Adult Education website (www.kentadulteducation.co.uk) and type my name into the search box.
