Brackley U3A Monthly Speaker Meetings 2018 programme

Our monthly speaker meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday morning of each month starting at 10:00am.

A meetings room organiser and other volunteers set up the hall before 10:00am on the morning of a meeting. Members are checked in by the Membership Secretary, with their £1.00 payment fee which goes towards the room hire and includes a hot drink and biscuits. Guests are welcome to attend twice for a payment of £2 each time and we hope they will thereafter decide to join us.

All meetings will be at Brackley Methodist Church, High Street, Brackley starting at 10:00am with doors open around 09:30am. Each meeting commences with a welcome from the chairman or other committee members, and brief notices are given before the presentation by a speaker, which usually lasts around one hour including questions. We hope to provide an eclectic mix of speakers and topics which we trust will be of interest to most people.

Please note special meetings:-

  • in August it is an Open Meeting
  • in December it is a Social Meeting.
