2015 marks the 200 year anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. To mark the occasion a number of events are taking place in Waterloo throughout June. For more information you can pick up a leaflet at WAC or go to the Waterloo 200 website.
These are the two of the events WAC will be hosting:
Regency Dance Workshops
Come along and learn the steps to an English Historical Dance from the late 1700’s and get involved in marking the Bicentenary of the famous Battle of Waterloo. As part of the workshop you will learn the dance that Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Duke did at the Neatherfield Ball in the film Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin.

WAC Pamphlet for current information
Waterloo Action Centre has published another pamphlet WAC Pamphlet - AUTUMN 2013 which is distributed to retired people in the local area. As before, it will have information about the wide range of activities that take place here at WAC and how you can get involved with the local community and lots more. If you would like a copy, please collect from WAC Reception.
Following consultation about the future location for Waterloo Library please note that the WAC option has NOT been agreed by WAC or current users as being compatible with activities in WAC nor have there been discussions which make it clear whether WAC would remain financially viable. However this is consultation and do please go and see for yourself and complete the brief questionnaire.
