Palmers Green & Southgate U3A was launched in February 2014 with an Open Meeting in the Intimate Theatre, Palmers Green which was attended by 230 people. The Mayor of Enfield formally opened our new U3A at the Inaugural Meeting in April 2014. In February 2016 we registered as a charity.
Nobody has to stop learning just because they have stopped working. The University of the Third Age is for people who want to keep active in mind and body. There's first age learning at school or college, followed by second age learning - the skills learnt at work. And there's third age learning when people learn whatever they want. That is what happens in U3A. People come together in small groups to study a subject they all find interesting. We already have over 50 interest Groups. For details of Groups click on the Groups page.
Membership of the University of the Third Age is open to men and women who are no longer in full time work, irrespective of race, religion or politics. There is neither a lower or an upper age limit; no qualifications are required and none are given.
