Horley & District


Our Monthly Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month (except July and December) at the Regent Hall, Albert Road, Horley, starting at 2pm. Free to U3A members, £2 to non-members. A full list of speakers at the meetings is below. A downloadable version of this list is available by clicking the link on the right.

Please note that most social events will have a cut-off date for payment. We regret that no refunds can be made once that cut-off date is reached.

On FRIDAY 21 February, the Walking Group will be striding out from Brighton Station to Brighton Marina - then will enjoy a jovial lunch.
A great start to the 2020 walking programme which may be viewed on the Group page.

Study Days are organised by the Surrey Network and are held at the Menuhin Hall, Cobham, Surrey, starting at 10am. These events are very good value at £10 for the whole day (£12 for non-U3A members). These days are very popular so pre-booking is a must. Please note that the subject of the March Study Day has been changed and is now The Geprgraphy and Landscapes of the South East.
