If you are over 50 I would suggest looking into your local Branch of the U3A.Generally their courses are run during the day.It has the advantage of being very cheap,the one in my area is £40 for the year and for that you can do up to 3 courses per week.The subjects offered vary from area to area as all of the Course Leaders are volunteers so depends who is available and willing to work for free!
If you are under 50 some of the WIs have day time meetings and some areas are very lively and friendly,some not so great,you could go along and see what you think about any local to you.
If you go to your local Library you should be able to find out what is going on in your area and you may be surprised at what is on offer.
Hope you find something you enjoy.Don''t give up if you try something which is not right for you keep searching and eventually you will find something that interests you.
