Bishop Auckland & District

Groups

Our website has been updated with the new u3a colour scheme and over the coming weeks our content will also have a face lift. Content might not look consistent during this time so please be patient while this takes place.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions many of the groups have been inactive over the last few months but some are now underway again via Zoom. Groups that are currently active and meeting are marked with *.

Our Groups are all usually active with a good membership in almost all cases. Some Groups may need to restrict membership due, for example, to location and/or premises. If you plan to join our U3A you will be made very welcome but please check if you are intending to joining for a specific activity that the Group can accommodate additional members.

A description of the Group can be seen by clicking on the appropriate link and you can also send a message to the Group Leader should you wish to comment or have a question. For reasons of privacy only first names are shown on this public website. Convenor names and other contact details can be supplied to group members.

You'll find a summary timetable below but more detailed information can be seen on the calendar.

There may be additional information for Groups on our Administrative site, a location map for instance and details can be accessed by clicking on this link
