We are the Sarum branch of the U3A, an organisation which welcomes people no longer in full time employment to join together to learn from each other and to enjoy social activities that are of common interest.

We manage our U3A through our Executive Committee,which is currently made up of ten members. Each committee member stands for re-election after a maximum of two years, including the Chairman. This allows other members the opportunity to stand for election without too long a wait.


We form Interest Groups which are led by members with relevant knowledge, experience or simply an interest in the subject. Groups meet either at members homes or at a variety of venues depending on the type of group. For further information on Groups, click on the GROUPS tab at the top of the page.

We also run Study Days led by expert tutors and social activities such as visits, holidays, walking groups, lunch clubs and games groups.

We produce a monthly newsletter which may be viewed on our website, posted, or collected at our Monthly Meeting. Click on the side link to view the latest information on activities.

We hold regular Monthly Meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Coffee and biscuits are served from 10.00, followed by a professional speaker on a topic of interest. Members have a chance to socialise before the meeting starts. For more details click on the EVENTS tab at the top of this page. We usually hold a New year Lunch after our January meeting. See link for details.

Throughout the summer months we organise visits to places of interest, usually by coach. For details of visits to be made in 2017, click on the VISITS tab at the top of this page.

IMPORTANT SPECIAL NOTICE: At present all SARUM U3A Activities are suspended until further notice. Click on side link to find out more information and contact details during the suspension. This is due to the Corvoid-19 outbreak. Information about health and safety during the outbreak and a Q and A session from the U3A head office is contained in the side links.

Individual subscription is £11 per member per year, and £21 for a couple. There is no charge for Monthly Meetings. Membership also includes a home delivered copy of the Third Age Trust magazine, U3A Matters, which is published five times a year.


We meet in St Francis Church, Beatrice Road, Salisbury, SP1 3PN - just off Castle Road, Salisbury. There is often parking available in the car park to the rear of the Church.
