The members of the Café Society follow the tradition of the café society of 19th century Paris by meeting in a relatively relaxed and informal atmosphere, to discuss the pressing issues of the day.
These may embrace the fields of politics, religion, social policy, cultural matters, international affairs, the economy, the environment, crime and punishment and so on. We have an open remit to talk about anything which we consider of sufficient importance to merit our attention.
We meet on the 1st Monday of each month at 10.00am in the Tudor Room at The Lion Hotel. The important point is not actually the content of our discussions but the ambience and the members themselves. Concerning topics, our interests and experience are very wide. We have no boundaries. Like the original Parisian clientèle, members can simply watch and listen, think or join in.
The Café Society is currently fully subscribed but we still welcome those wishing to sample the group and curious visitors. Other discussion groups in Shrewsbury U3A currently have spaces and new groups are always being established.
