Northumbria Region U3A

Real Ale Appreciation Group

Northumbria Region U3A Real Appreciation Group

We have now recommenced meetings from June 2021 and our next meeting details are listed at the bottom of this page

We normally meet every two weeks on a Thursday. We choose when and where to meet during the previous meeting. Choice of venue is based on personal recommendation, with food availability and the variety of real ales on tap a major determinant; Architectural merit and historic association also considered. We try to pick meeting places in various parts of the region, with the proximity of public transport a major factor.

Convivial conversation usually takes place, sometimes erudite but generally light-hearted.

There are people from a range of local U3As in the region who attend.

It is a must for all U3A Real Ale lovers and people who just like to chat in Pubs. No booking necessary, just turn up. Be assured you will be made to feel most welcome! If you would like any more information please contact Nigel Collins on Newcastle 421 8933.
