Northumbria Region U3A


U3A Day

The date for this event is now 2nd June 2021.

The following pertains to the 2020 date and may or may not apply to 2021!

We have been offered the opportunity to take over the T&W museums as some local school children did recently, all those projects will be underway and we can showcase the sort of work done by U3As. We can have a stand of U3A advertising and pamphlets at the door and in a dedicated room in each of the three museums or Art Galleries, we can put up displays of what has been done so far, exhibitions of Shared Learning Projects and Research which has been carried out in the past or is ongoing.

This year we will be showing at three of the Tyne and Wear Museums: Discovery, Hancock and one other, next U3A Day we will take over another three, and so on.

This is not to replace what your U3A is doing for U3A Day, but is in addition to it. Please let us know what you have planned and that can be part of the exhibition if you are willing to provide
materials to be copied.

Anyone who is involved in research of any kind in your U3A or your Interest group, please get in touch as we would like to show the general public what a wide and varied set of interests we follow in U3A.
