Trips and Events

Stansted Mountfitchet U3A runs a number of trips and events.

Our free Monthly Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at St. John's Church Hall, Chapel Hill, 1.30pm for 2pm. We normally have a speaker, free tea and coffee are served and you can find information about future trips and events. Prospective new members are welcome to come along to see what we do.

We hold five or six Saturday Morning Seminars per year. These are from 9.30 to approximately 12.30 and are usually held at The Free Church hall in Chapel Hill. The seminar leaders are all experts in their field and subjects are varied, from the Arts to Science & Technology. There is a small charge of £4 for members and £5 for non-members to attend and booking is essential.

Various Day Trips are organised by members during the year and one or two short Holiday Breaks, normally by coach.
