The present group has been in existence since January 2015. Each year we choose a theme and members contribute with presentations based on their reading around the subject or research into it.

Our chosen themes in the past season were ‘The Romans in Perthshire’ and ‘The early railways of Perthshire’. Group members had the opportunity to work on one or other of these themes, led by a member (or members) with a special interest. Our meetings have allowed for sharing of the work undertaken – often via the medium of PowerPoint presentations.

In session 2019-20 we will be learning about ‘The medieval period in Perth, Perthshire and beyond’. Members of the group will contribute to presentations. The session starts on 9 September with a visit from colleagues from Glasgow West End U3A who will give a presentation on ‘The radical uprising of 1820’ which their group spent last session researching.

We have reached our capacity membership and currently hold a waiting list of people wishing to join the group.
