The Newquay U3A General Meeting is held from 10.30 am on the second Tuesday every month (except August) at the Lane Theatre, on the outskirts of Newquay, TR8 4PX (please click on the link for map). At these meetings there is an opportunity to meet up with fellow members over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits. There is usually a speaker, whose talk will start at 11 am in the auditorium, followed by an address by our chairman after which our group leaders will make announcements.

Please note that the Lane Theatre car park can get very full, so please park considerately. Car share if possible. 85 & 87 buses to Morrisons, just a short walk away.


For a list of our recent and forthcoming speakers please see the "Speakers" link or tab.


On weekdays there is usually something going on in Newquay U3A, both in the morning and in the afternoon. Some events take place in the evening and sometimes we even have something on at the weekend. There are plenty of activities to choose from, which could be physical, educational or social.

We currently have over 28 interest groups covering some 25 varied subjects, meeting as required in a wide variety of venues or at each others' homes, organised by volunteers within Newquay U3A. Please see the "Groups" page for a list of all our group activities.
