Buxton & District


Membership of The U3A is open to individuals who are in their Third Age (being the period of time after the first age of childhood dependence and the second age of full time employment and/or parental responsibility) and are interested in participating in The U3A.

Founded in 1996, we have over 500 members and ~60 various interest groups. Please check Benefits of Buxton U3A Membership and Groups to see if anything attracts you; browse our Leaflet and latest News (Newslinks, Ad Hoc Update). Our Group Leaders will be delighted to welcome you, as will any of our Management Committee and Helpers. Meet them at our General Meetings (2nd Mondays, but see Events page); you can attend two U3A sessions free as a 'taster'.You can download a Membership Subscription Form together with Subscription Instructions and a Standing Order Form from the Links column on the right hand side of this page. You can contact our Membership Secretary by using the Contact page. Membership is one £25 all-in cost (1 April-31 March). For that you can join as many Groups as you want!! If you would like to help occasionally, see Occasional Helpers. Finally, like all U3As, we have our own Constitution and Charitable Status.

If you can't join us because of mobility, Virtual U3A is a national online group.
