Welcome to Newmarket U3A

Registered Charity Number 1183168

U3A stands for University of the Third Age, which is a worldwide self-help, self-managed group of co-operatives for people no longer in full time work. No qualifications are needed or given, it’s all for fun, to share and laugh and maybe learn new things, meet people and make friends. Come and join us!

Newmarket Welcome Sign Members of our U3A group live in and around Newmarket, a Suffolk market town, on the border with Cambridgeshire. Newmarket, known as 'The Home of Horseracing', has a long tradition in the sport and many connections with royal families, dating back to James I, and particularly featuring Charles I and Charles II. Our present monarch, Elizabeth II, is very keen on the sport and visits the town regularly.

We hope very much that you will become involved in our group and share your interests with us.
