Kings Norton & District

Events

THERE WILL BE NO GENERAL MEETINGS OR EVENTS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID 19. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR GROUP LEADER FOR INFORMATION ON ANY GROUP ACTIVITIES

General Meetings

General Meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of every month throughout the year (with a break for the summer holidays). They are an opportunity to hear about what’s been happening in your U3A, and what’s in store in the next few months. Meetings are held at St Josephs and Helen's hall, where we have a programme of speakers who will be giving talks.

The meeting is also be an opportunity to receive news and updates on the Interest Groups and get advice etc from other members and from Committee members.

Saturday Workshops

Occasional interactive workshops are planned throughout the year where members can discuss in small groups everyday issues affecting their lives. The workshops are free to members and are usually held on Saturday mornings. Check the event list for future dates.

Other Events

As the U3A develops it is hoped that special events and one-off meetings will be held and they will be reported here.
