non-members are welcome to attend these meetings
Dulwich U3A Open Meetings Talks are from 2:00pm till 4:00pm unless otherwise stated.
Most open meetings take place at Herne Hill Baptist Church, Half Moon Lane, SE24 9HU ( unless a different venue is stated )
Suggestions for a theme or speaker at our monthly meeting are welcome -please contact the secretary on contact page

NOTE- All the events in the meetings section below are Dulwich & District events. All other events are Regional or National U3A membership is required for these

We are setting up a REALLY USEFUL GROUP which will probably work in the same way as our tea volunteers who do a grand job with our refreshments.
We would welcome volunteers to help us, for example in setting up monthly meetings when the committee often needs some extra help in a number of ways.
Help is also needed in producing and circulating publicity materials and computer and
technology matters.
If you would like to get more closely involved with our U3A please contact the Secretary at
