Our Groups

Details of the times and location of group meetings may vary from month to month.

Please note that some groups have limited membership due to accommodation restrictions, or other needs.

So if you don’t find what you’re looking for in this list, or the group you are interested in is currently full, then why not start a group yourself? See HOT NEWS page for details of Proposed New Groups

For information about what is involved in being a Group Convenor, contact Exeter U3A Groups Coordinator, and/or see link panel on right for Group Convenor/Leader Information.

On request, members will receive the Newsletter by email, detailing current groups and activities with contact details. Members without a computer receive a printed copy on application to a committee member. In addition you can download a version of the Bimonthly NEWSLETTER without contact details.

Important messages for Group Convenors:


Please note that all Room Bookings and changes and cancellations must now go through the Secretary, Ann Staley, whose contact information can be found in the Newsletter. Please do not contact the Groups Co-ordinator about this particular job.


It is important to remember that U3A insurance is to protect MEMBERS against litigation following negligence: it is NOT Personal Accident cover. It is important, therefore, particularly for outdoor groups, to ensure that all participants are members and that they all know that they take part AT THEIR OWN RISK.

You may also be interested in U3A Online Courses so go and have a look.
