This page lists the events that are open to all our members. This page does not list meetings of the various special-interest groups, which are normally only open to members of the particular group. Please see the "Groups" page of this website for information about the special-interest groups.

There is a U3A Meeting Point in Cheddar Library every Monday 10:30 am to 12:00 noon. If you are in Cheddar on a Monday why not drop in for a coffee and a chat.

Monthly Talks are held on the First Thursday of the month, normally at Cheddar Village Hall (i.e. Church House). Tea and biscuits are available from 2:00pm, and the talk starts at 2:30pm prompt. A fee of £2 is charged on entry. However, the Monthly Talk in May is combined with the AGM, which is held at Draycott Memorial Hall and starts at 2:15pm. There are no Monthly Talks in July or August, and in December there is Entertainment For Christmas instead of a talk. Potential members are welcome to attend a Monthly Talk as a visitor. Please scroll down for details of specific Monthly Talks.

Coffee Mornings are normally held on the Third Thursday of the month, except August, at Cheddar Village Hall from 10:00am to 11:30am. Coffee mornings are open to all and are a good time for potential members to come along for a chat.
