The annual cost of belonging to Northampton u3a is £20. For what is included, please see Membership Benefits in the Members Area.

Specific costs for group activities such as transport, entrance fees, tickets, meals, and premises hire (if applicable) are paid on a meeting by meeting basis.

For more information, including our Principles and Objectives and Constitution, please see the Members Area page by clicking this link.

If you are already a member of another u3a, there will be a £3.50 discount because you will already have paid the Third Age Trust capitation fee at your existing u3a. You will be an Associate member of Northampton u3a.

Membership runs from April for 12 months, but new members joining during the first 3 months of the year are enrolled for 15 months.
