Please note that due to Government restrictions most normal Newquay u3a activities were cancelled during the Covid-19 crisis, but some meetings are now held on Zoom, like Talks in General Meetings, French Conversation meetings and ad hoc Quizzes. General Meetings are held via Zoom on 2nd Tuesday each month from 10.30am.

Now restrictions have eased, some activities are resuming. Please see the Dates for your Diary list below.



Prior to Coronavirus,the Newquay u3a General Meeting was usually held from 10.15 am on the second Tuesday every month (except August) at the Lane Theatre, on the outskirts of Newquay, TR8 4PX (map for Monthly Meeting). It is hoped that these General Meetings at the Lane Theatre will resume in July.

At these meetings there is an opportunity to meet up with fellow members over a free 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 committee members and group leaders will make announcements.

After you have had your refreshments, our Groups Coordinator will be running a slideshow of photos of recent events from 10:30am in the auditorium so you can see what some of our groups have been up to recently.

Please note that the Lane Theatre car park can get very full, so please park considerately. Double park where possible as most people leave at the same time. Car share with other members who live near you. 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 30 interest groups covering a variety of subjects, meeting as required in different venues or at each others' homes. These groups are organised by volunteers within Newquay U3A. Please see the "Groups" page for a full list of all our group activities.
