Belfast

Groups

As you can see from the list below, Belfast U3A has a large number of groups, catering for a diverse range of interests. To find out more about a group, click on the group name, or if you wish to join a group or go along to an activity, please contact the Convenor*. You can email the Convenor directly on some group pages, or you may request contact details for a Convenor by sending an email using the General Enquiries option on the Contacts Page. Once you are a member of Belfast U3A, you will receive a monthly newsletter with all Convenor contact details on it.

You can see details of specific events scheduled by groups such as Let's Go, Concert/Theatre under the appropriate sections on the Events page. They are also listed in the current Newsletter and you can sign up at the monthly meeting or contact the Convenor.

If you have an interest and would like to facilitate a group of similarly-minded people, we will help to guide you through the process of starting up a new interest group - you do not need to be an expert in your field!

Sometimes a group reaches full capacity; in such cases (as in the Book Groups and Creative Writing Groups for example), an additional group is formed with a new leader to accommodate demand.

*Please note: before you can join in any group activity, you must be a member of the U3A.
