Help with booking a course

It’s easy to book your place on a City Lit course. You can add as many courses to your basket as you like, so you can now buy more than one course at a time.

Many City Lit courses fill up quickly, so try and book early to avoid disappointment. If the course you are trying to book is full, you can add yourself to a waiting list – this option is available on most of our courses.

Browse our courses, or enter a keyword for a subject in the search box at the top of any page.

Filter your course options

If it's just Tuesday evenings you have free, you only want a one-off course or you have a set budget - our filter options put you in control of the courses you see.

You can filter by:

  • Price
  • Day
  • Weekday or weekend
  • Time of day
  • Duration

Vouchers and discounts

Most vouchers or discount codes can be applied in the checkout process when you confirm your order.
