Interest Groups

For up to date Group information and telephone contact numbers please refer to your latest copy of our Newsletter or to the Groups Board at our monthly general meeting. External enquirers should contact our Groups Liaison Officer via the Contact tab.

We have Groups covering many topics; some served by multiple groups with various meeting schedules.
The Object of these Groups is to improve the Educational and Recreational activities of our Members.
The index of subject areas below will take you to a page containing details of groups relevant to that subject area.

In addition to these Groups there is a small organisation called Holidays2Gether which facilitates Holidays for our Members and Guests. These Holidays are organised and run by two Travel Companies – Just for Groups who organise General Holidays and HF Holidays who organise Walking Holidays.
While these holidays are advertised to our Members through various LLU3A publications they are not run by or promoted by LLU3A.
Holidays2Gether co-ordinates the reservations, but all payments and bookings are made directly to and with the Holiday Company. They are not U3A Events and are not covered by U3A insurance. Members taking part must ensure that they have adequate personal insurance or take out the insurance offered by the Holiday Company.
For more information please click on Holidays2Gether

Information for Group Coordinators can be found by clicking on the Link to the right of this page and in the Members Area

On occasions a Group may have a full complement of members ( e.g. because of the space needed to meet ), but we will be pleased to assist those who wish to start up a new group. Don’t let this put you off – many of our Groups are also currently welcoming new members – for groups with vacancies please click on the LINK to the right.

In addition to our own Groups you may also join the Virtual U3A (Link to Virtual U3A).
The Virtual U3A or vU3A is like a local U3A Group except that its' activities all take place on-line. There is a charge of £12 to join vU3A

U3A Oversights is a link to Groups offered by other U3A's

Future Learn (Link to Future Learn) offers many on-line short courses which are completely FREE. They are run by various universities and last from 3-10 weeks. Topics include Genealogy, Shakespeare, Exploring Oceans, Human Psychology, Writing Fiction, Ancient Rome, Ageing Well and there are many others. You can join the course, do as much of it as you wish or leave it if you think it is not what you wanted. There is absolutely no pressure!
