Perth

Events

In addition to Group Meetings, of which there are many, Perth U3A arranges other events, including Registration Day, a series of Open Meetings and occasional social events. These Perth U3A meetings are shown in the table below.

Some events arranged by other organisations are shown on the Non-Perth U3A Events page. These are chosen because they may be of special interest to Perth U3A members.

Perth U3A Open Meetings are usually held in Letham St Mark's Church, Rannoch Road, Perth, PH1 2HH. Meetings start at 10.30 with refreshments available from 10.00. A Perth city bus (number 1) stops at the door. If the venue is different, details are given below.

Use the pigeon icon to contact:

  • our Open Meeting Coordinator, for example, with ideas for future speakers
  • our Social Events Coordinator, for example, to ask if spaces are still available for an event
  • the IT Café organisers.
