Edinburgh

Activity Groups

Please note that, because of the Covid-19 virus, many groups have suspended their meetings and activities, however a growing number are holding virtual "on-line" meetings. See On-Line Meetings page for details.

Edinburgh u3a has over 200 groups. Our groups are listed alphabetically below. Below that they are also listed by day of the week. If you are interested in joining a group, see How to Join a Group.

Groups often fill up very quickly, so to reduce the risk of disappointment you are advised to check the Group Vacancies page which lists groups that had vacancies at the start of the current month. In addition have a look at the New, Suspended and Proposed Groups page to see if if you'd be interested in supporting one of them. You may also be interested in the Group Leaders wanted section.

You can also download the latest regularly updated version of the Groups Booklet can be downloaded in password-protected PDF format. (The pass-code is circulated to members in the monthly Bulletin.) A paper copy of the Booklet is issued to members in August each year.

Group Leaders Contact details are updated each month, and the latest version can be downloaded in password-protected PDF format.

The latest version of The Bulletin, as circulated to members each month, is also available for download in password-protected PDF format.

If you are interested in starting a new group or canvassing interest for a new group, see Starting a New Group. The Group Coordinators will help all they can.

Group Leaders and Coordinators may find the Group Leaders Guidance Booklet a useful reference. They may also find a list of Potential Meeting Venues a useful resource, especially when groups need to find new places to meet.

The Group Vacancies page provides a list of groups for which vacancies were available at the beginning of the current month. Please note that this is not a definitive listing of all vacancies – only a listing of groups whose leaders have advised that vacancies exist.

Most Group pages include information about accessibility to their venues – see Accessibility Key for Group Venues.

Please click on individual groups in the list below for further details and locations.

Note: this website includes a page listing "Suggested Groups" being suggestions put forward at New Members' meetings. Members who are interested in forming any of the suggested groups should contact the relevant Group Coordinator.
