Richmond upon Thames

Groups

Richmond U3A currently has over 100 interest groups which are listed below. To find out more about a particular group click on its name to take you to the group's own page. Below the list of groups you will find a weekly timetable.

Groups meet monthly, fortnightly or weekly and generally meet in the daytime.

Prior to joining a group it is essential to contact the Group Leader as we cannot guarantee vacancies. Some groups operate waiting lists and sometimes, if there is enough interest, we are able to start a second group.

We are always keen for new groups to get started. If, after joining, you would like to lead a group, we will give you every encouragement in setting this up. If you are interested in starting a group, please contact the Group Co-ordinator or relevant Section Leader for help and advice.
