Monthly Meetings and other Events

Aberdeen U3A Monthly Meetings


Boys Brigade Hall in Crimon Place, Aberdeen

On the first Thursday of each month (except July and August or when the date has to change) we meet at 1.30pm in Aberdeen. We have a visiting speaker each month followed by tea or coffee. It is aimed at bringing members together, publicising the activities of the groups and the many other social events and giving members a sense of fellowship in the U3A. You are welcome to attend a meeting as a visitor to meet members and group leaders, and to get a feel of what the U3A has to offer.

At the start of the meeting our Chairman gives us any news and intimations involving our local group or the U3A in general. Our invited speaker then presents the talk, often illustrated, and takes questions from our group. We then have a chance to meet friends, or make new ones, over a cup of tea or coffee. We vacate the hall normally by 3:30 pm.

We enjoy several social occasions such as an annual New Year lunch, various trips and lots of great company.

The summer educational trip to Scone Palace will take place on Friday 22nd June. The cost is £34 which will include coach fees, entry to Scone Palace and grounds and high tea at the Red House hotel.

The coach will pick people up at 08.50 a.m. outside His Majesty's Theatre. It will go direct to Scone Palace. Afterwards the coach will park in Perth where there will be free time in the town centre. High tea will be at Coupar Angus at 4.30p.m..

The coach has places for 49 people and May Martin is taking names. Please note that the full cost will need to be paid on sign up by either cash or a cheque made payable to Aberdeen U3A.

Each year we try to engage speakers whose subjects we hope will interest our members. Over the last years we have included items of local interest, both historically and geographically, along with topics covering the arts. We are always happy to have suggestions from members, so do let us know of any requests!
