Interest groups - the centre of u3a
Quiz Group Winners Our interest groups are the nucleus of our activities. They are all led by members and cover a wide range of subjects from yoga to quizzes; from art appreciation to pub lunches; from psychology to music; and almost everything in between. Group meetings are in the daytime, often in the group leader's home, and for larger groups in hired halls. During lockdown, many groups moved their activities onto internet platforms like Zoom, but face2face meetings are now resuming. Visit our Groups page to see which groups are active at the moment.

Open Meetings for all members
Nigel Colman-Dirk Bogarde Once a month, generally on the last Monday of the month, we invite all our members to an Open Meeting where you can socialise with other members, have a coffee or tea and a biscuit, and listen to a variety of interesting and entertaining speakers. At the moment, the Open Meetings also take place on Zoom. Our next Open Meeting will on Monday 27th June where u3a member Nigel Colman, will perform his one-man play about Dirk Bogarde. See the coming months' programme on our Open Meetings page.
