CIAA Diary of Events

The following is a date ordered diary of events. In most cases you can navigate to see further details. See classes for a list of regular weekly classes. Weather permitting, the events often take place out in the open (so wear appropriate clothes).

We also give seminars to other schools and associations both in UK and abroad. Anyone interested in organizing such a seminar should contact CIAA.
