New Idler Academy online course with Harry Mount

The Miracle of Ancient Greece, £35.

Architecture, tragedy, comedy, philosophy, and democracy... They all magically clicked into place in the fifth century BC in Greece and Athens - but why?

Join Harry for his new Idler Academy online course The Miracle of Ancient Greece and get to meet him for a live online lesson next Wednesday 30th March at 5pm.

The Idler is offering Oldies half price on Digital Academy memberships with the code HM50 - that’s only £35 for ALL The Idler Academy online courses, including Harry’s on Ancient Greece, Classical Civilisation, British Architecture, and Latin. Digital Academy details are here.

Oldies can also choose to buy a full Idler Academy membership (which includes print editions of the Idler magazine) for half price with the same code HM50.

(Note: if you choose a recurring subscription, the price will revert to full price on renewal).
