What have you always wanted to learn?

Published on 03 October 2019

Two-hundred free events teaching cheesemaking, woodworking, 3D printing, coding, self-defence and so many other skills are on offer at the Melton Lifelong Learning Festival this month.

The 10-day festival, presented by Melton City Council, is a celebration of continuous learning at all ages and promotes the benefits of learning new life skills.

Deputy Mayor Cr Lara Carli said the festival was a great way to discover new interests right here in the City of Melton.  

“The festival takes learning out of the classroom and into dance studios, gardens, swimming pools and community hubs. It’s a fun, fulfilling and hands-on approach to learning that everyone can enjoy,” Cr Carli said.  

“This is your chance to try something that’s always interested you, or challenge yourself by discovering something you may never have considered before.

“The best part is many of the activities will continue beyond the festival, opening up new possibilities for ongoing learning, building friendships and maybe even a hobby for life.”

Some activities require bookings, so register early to avoid disappointment.

The festival will run from Friday 18 October until Sunday 27 October.
