Welcome to the ALTON U3A


QUESTION - What is the Alton U3A?

Alton U3A provides leisure and recreational activities for people who are retired or semi-retired.

We have over 500 members and run a programme of 40+ different activities where members can learn together, not for qualifications but for the joy of discovery; in addition, we run talks, excursions, theatre and concert trips and holidays.

Activities are run for members by members (so everyone has an opportunity to share their skills and experience). If you can’t find an activity that matches your interest you can talk to us about starting a new one!

All you need to join are: Enthusiasm and a willingness to join others who share your interests - Being open to meeting new people.

To find out more:
