Beverley & District


WELCOME to the website of Beverley & District u3a

About the u3a

u3a is a UK-wide collection of over 1000 local charitable groups that provide the opportunity for the retired or semi-retired to come together and to learn and develop for fun. The aim is for people in this “third age” of their lives to join in exploring new ideas, skills and interests. The u3a ethos is to “learn, laugh, live”. All u3a groups are run on a voluntary basis, with members sharing their knowledge and experience with one other. You can read more by selecting the “u3a” icon or menu item at the top of this page.

About Beverley & District u3a

Beverley & District u3a was established in 2000 and is a lively and vibrant group, with more than 600 current members. Members live in and around the picturesque market town of Beverley, East Yorkshire. The group includes some 50 special interest groups covering a comprehensive range of indoor and outdoor activities. We are an informal and co-operative organisation, and anyone joining can be assured of a warm and open welcome. In addition to our special interest activities, meetings with a speaker are held on the third Thursday of every month, to which all members are invited.
