Shipston-on-Stour Area

A Warm Welcome

Shipston on Stour is renowned for its friendliness and community spirit and our U3A exemplifies this. If you are no longer in full-time employment or just have time on your hands, and are looking for interesting and stimulating activities in the company of others, then joining Shipston on Stour Area U3A may be just what you need!

We welcome visitors to our regular gatherings at the Townsend Hall in Shipston. Come along and meet us, find out about our Interest Groups and how to become a member.

Our members have many skills and life experiences and we bring these qualities to our Interest Groups, be it ancient Greek and amblers to table tennis and wine tasting! Friends are made, knowledge shared, lives become richer as we meet, find enjoyment in learning and fun in our third age.

We offer a wide range of GROUPS (currently just over 40) where members come together to share their enthusiasm for various subjects and activities. There should hopefully be something for everyone.

We also offer regular monthly meetings EVENTS where a speaker entertains us with their specialist subject. Following government guidelines, these are currently being held online via Zoom or similar.

We hope there is something for everyone in the Shipston on Stour Area U3A.

We cover Shipston on Stour and the local area including the villages around about. Read more about joining us on our MEMBERSHIP page. The SoSA U3A is an registered charity (Number 1170969) affiliated to The Third Age Trust.
