Groups

Interest groups are the engines of life-long learning in the U3A, meeting regularly to study subjects of common interest. The group convenor takes responsibility for organising meetings, which run without distinction between teachers and learners. Members share their knowledge and experience and enjoyment is the prime motive.

You must be a full or associate member of Leicester U3A to attend one of our group meetings (Subscription form).

  • Scroll down to find individual group pages, what groups do, and where and when they meet. In most cases, you can email the convenor from the group page.
  • The Calendar lists the days and times of group meetings.
  • New groups are indicated with a yellow background on the list below. Budding groups, in the process of starting up, include: Backgammon and History 3. Contact the Groups Coordinator for details.
  • If you have an interest that is not yet represented, it is likely that others will share this interest. So think of starting a new group and contact the Groups Coordinator.
  • You can also find help from the Third Age Trust, which has a Resource Centre and provides Subject Advice on its website (click on the U3A logo at top right: log in required).
