Since 1903, the Classical Association has supported the establishment of local branches – classics communities across England and Wales which meet regularly and are run by dedicated volunteers. There are currently 23 active CA branches providing a mix of lecture programmes, outreach events, competitions, reading groups and other initiatives on classical topics.
Some branches are based within university departments and offer a range of events for students, teachers and the general public; some focus solely on school events; others are based in the community and attract members of all ages and backgrounds. All branches are passionate about promoting interest in the ancient world.
To find your nearest branch, please click on the map or list at the bottom of the page. Branch events are also listed on the Events page.
