Dulwich & District

Events

Dulwich & District u3a currently have over 90 Interest Groups, full details of which can be found on the Groups page.

In addition to the Interest Groups we organise monthly meetings with interesting guest speakers. It is also an opportunity for members to meet each other, swap experiences and discuss ideas.

Learn Digital Life Skills: This is a series of online learning sessions to introduce members to the many and varied elements of the digital world. They are provided free to Dulwich & District U3A members by the IT consultancy Systems & Smiles. The whole series is sponsored by the phone company, ‘3’. Each session is self contained and there is no need to ‘attend’ the whole series – pick and choose as you wish. Sessions will resume in January 2024 and will be added to the Workshops section below when confirmed.
