Carlisle & District

Welcome to Carlisle and District U3A

Like most other U3As, we are a member of the Third Age Trust.

We count our birthdays from 1995 and have been a registered charity since 1999.

We draw our members from all over the Carlisle district, including its surrounding villages and small towns. Roughly, our catchment area lies within a 15 mile radius of Carlisle although we have members from further afield.

We currently have about 850 members and about 50 separate interest / activity groups. click on the GROUPS icon to see the full list.
