What is the u3a?

Founded in 1982, u3a is a UK-wide charity of locally run interest groups that provide a wide range of opportunities to come together to learn for fun. Members explore new ideas, skills and activities together. Subjects range from gardening, crafts and wine tasting to philosophy, cryptic crosswords and languages the list is very long !!

Who is it for?

People who are no longer in full-time employment, to come together to develop their interests and continue their learning purely for the pleasure of it in a friendly and informal environment.

Why should I join ?

The value for money is excellent, with the average annual fees of less than £20. If you enjoy meeting people and have a curiosity about the world around you then the u3a is for you.
There is even a Trust u3a available on line if that would suit your lifestyle better.
Checkout the website of a u3a/s near you to see exactly what is on offer. Click here for u3as in the South East Region
