Aberdeen U3A Monthly Meetings

at

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. 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. Normally we then have a chance to meet friends, or make new ones, over a cup of tea or coffee, but the serving of refreshments in currently suspended.

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

You can read the announcements made at recent meetings by clicking on Announcements.

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!
