Welcome to Newmarket U3A

Our U3A is a group formed in 1987 who get together for social events, outings, games, music, learning, and just enjoying meeting other people. We are a very friendly group of like minded people which is still growing and new members are always welcome, and new activities to join are always coming along.

We hold a general meeting once a month at Exning Road Social Club, when we have an update on activities, a speaker, followed by a chat over a free cup of tea and a biscuit.

There are also separate interest group meetings and organised events, more details of which you can find on the GROUPS and EVENTS pages click on button at the top of this page) and how to contact each group coordinator. You can join all or any of the Groups that interest you. There is a small charge for each group meeting of only £1.50.

Most of our groups have restarted in-person meetings. Please continue to follow all Government guidelines and remain vigilant about Covid risks when getting together.

You can find out more about each group with the GROUPS button above.
