Hi everybody, welcome to the Leigh U3A Culture Club.

I would also like to introduce you to another cultural event in Leigh, namely Big Band Night which takes place at 8:30 pm-ish, in The Suby Club (Pownall Street off Guest Street) every Monday evening except Bank Holidays. It is free admittance and there is a bar with very reasonably priced drinks. A raffle takes place half way through the night, which goes towards the cost of the prizes and the 17 piece bands's expenses. The genre of music ranges from Glen Miller, Count Basie and sometimes a bit of Presley! The band is locally well known as The Brian Ward Band led by Dave Prior, and as a rule there is a guest singer.

Opera Screenings

Please note that the screenings will last up to three hours. Normally we will try to have a mid-session break. It is essential, therefore, for members to attend promptly to avoid disturbing the enjoyment of others. For comfort attendance numbers may be limited. Screenings will usually take place in the Bar Area.
