CANCELLED: In the light of the Government’s announcement (16th March 2020) with the restriction to “Avoid non-essential travel”  Higham Hall College is cancelling all courses for at least two weeks until Tuesday 31st March. Therefore the Waterloo Association study weekend due to run Friday 27th to Sunday 29th March is cancelled.  Refunds or credits will be offered by Higham who will be trying to contact all attendees.

We are sorry for the disappointment this will cause. We plan to run the 2020 programme when we return to Higham in 2021
