Broxbourne

Events

Our monthly meeting is held on the 3rd Thursday in the month at the Spotlight, Hoddesdon. The doors open at 10am and our speaker starts at 10.45.

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, Jigsaw puzzles, and a ticket from our Raffle table (excellent prizes!). These raise funds for our U3A.

Our talks for the next few months are listed below, together with any events organised by various Groups.

To the right of this page, links will appear occasionally for events organised by U3A Central Office. Just click on the link to find out more.
