Pershore & District

Interest Groups

Our interest groups are at the heart of Pershore & District u3a and are organised by our members on a voluntary basis. This follows the u3a ethos that members draw on their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other. There are never any qualifications to pass – it is just for pleasure, with learning as its own reward. We do all we can to make sure that anyone who wants to can take part; you can join any group that has spaces available.

We have around 75 interest groups, covering a huge range of topics. You can explore what might be of interest to you by clicking on the links below, which will give you information about specific groups and when they meet. As no payments are made to members for services given to the u3a, many of our interest groups are free to attend. For others, there may be a charge to cover room hire, or to purchase items used by the group. A full list of all our group activities is available to download by clicking this link: Groups Activities List.

If there is a group you are interested in joining, but on contacting the Group Leader you find that the group is full, please let John, our Groups Co-ordinator know. This will help us to keep track of interest and, where possible, start up a new group.

We are very keen to support new groups, and keep a Groups Wishlist suggested by members. If you have ideas about what you would like to learn about, but can't find a suitable group, please email our Groups Co-ordinator using the blue bird icon to add your ideas to the wishlist.

Perhaps you might like to become a group leader yourself! You don't have to be an expert - if there are others who want to learn about the same subject area, you can learn together. Click here to read a Message from John, our Groups Co-ordinator, celebrating what it means to be a Group Leader. We also have a dedicated Group Leaders page for further information.

If you are thinking of joining our u3a, but would like to try out a group before you join, you can get in touch with our Groups Co-ordinator, who may be able to arrange for you to go along to one group meeting before you become a full Pershore & District u3a member.
