Events

Our monthly meeting is normally held on the 3rd Thursday in the month at the Spotlight, Hoddesdon, if the venue alters then it will be notified here.

Before the speaker begins, there is time to talk to the Group Leaders and browse the information available on all our interest groups, and to have a coffee with friends. If you are a visitor, you will have the opportunity to be shown around by a U3A member.

You can buy second hand books at very reasonable prices from our Bookstall and a ticket from our Raffle table (excellent prizes!). These raise funds for our U3A.

On this page, links will appear occasionally for events organised by U3A Central Office or the local network of U3As. Just click on the link to find out more.

NB: It is extremely important that you have paid your membership if you’re partaking in any group activities, to ensure our insurance remains valid. Therefore, we have asked all Group Leaders to check membership cards.
