Meetings of Bailgate U3A are held on the third Tuesday of each month, at the Nightingale Rooms, Nettleham Road, commencing at 1:30pm. There will generally be a speaker at these meetings in addition to giving an opportunity for members to socialize and to plan the activities of the Interest Groups.

Members please note that there will be a nominal charge of £2 per head for members and guests at each of these meetings towards the cost of speaker, plus room hire.

You may attend two of our monthly meetings as a guest in order to help you decide if you would like to join us. Also you may attend two interest groups as a guest to help inform your decision (either two meetings of one group or one meeting of two groups). All we ask is you complete a contact details form to ensure you are covered by our insurance.

Full members of any U3A can attend Interest Group meetings where there are vacancies

Information relating to each of the meetings and dates can be found on the Events page
