Monthly Meetings


Monthly meetings are restarting in November on the last Tuesday at 2.30pm using Zoom, until we are allowed to meet together in large groups. If you are unsure about using Zoom to participate in the general meeting, the helpful Help for Zoom guide published by Ilkley & District u3a, may help you.

Thereafter we will revert to our usual pattern with a monthly meeting is held for all members on the last Tuesday of every month (excluding December) at 2:30pm promptly in our meeting venue at "The Old Speckled Hen Lounge", Northampton County Cricket Ground, Wantage Road, or Abington Avenue, Northampton NN1 4PR.

( And a Free Cuppa ) !!

Please note that Membership Cards must be shown when attending all Monthly Meetings.


Please note that the doors will NOT be open until 2:00 pm enabling your Committee to prepare the seating etc.


Tea and Coffee volunteers

Volunteers serve the tea and coffee (4 people) at each general meeting. You need to arrive at the meeting between 1.30pm and 2pm to set up.


Group displays will be shown at monthly General Meetings to allow groups to share what they do with the membership of Northampton u3a. If you want your group to participate in this, please contact Marie Catling.
