Here you will find details of our general meetings. These are held on the second Monday of each month at 14:15 in the Marchesi Centre, Windermere. The programme for each meeting is a short business meeting followed by a talk by an invited speaker and finally time for tea, biscuits and a chat with friends.

Other activities such as outings organised by our groups, study days and similar (to which all members are invited) are also listed. Activities of possible interest to our members in neighbouring U3As, the North-west Region and the National U3A appear here.

Non-commercial events run by other organisations that may be of interest to U3A members can be found on the News page.

All General Meetings begin at 14:15.
