Study Days - Impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the March, April, May and June study days were postponed in early March. After discussions with the Menuhin Hall and in the light of continuing uncertainty about the safe planning of future U3A events the committee have decided to postpone the September, October and November study days until our programme can recommence at some point, hopefully in early 2021.

Study days are open to all U3A members and guests are very welcome. They are held in the Menuhin Hall, Stoke d'Abernon; starting at 9.30am with registration and running from 10am to 4pm. The fee, including coffee/tea and biscuits, is £10 for members and £12 for guests. Attendees should bring a packed lunch. Prior booking is necessary. Click on any study day link below for a programme and booking form. You can use the on-line form on the Contact page to send a message to John Kennedy, Booking Secretary. If you would like to comment on the organisation or content of the study day or would like to offer ideas for the future please use the Feedback Form and send it to John Kennedy as an email attachment or fill in the same form which will be available at the study days and hand it to any member of the committee. For information the list of study day titles over fifteen seasons is given here, together with a poster of a typical study day.

South East Forum Summer School 2020 - Cancelled Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

The South East U3A Forum Summer School was to be held at the University of Chichester from Monday 15 to Thursday 18 June 2020. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the summer school was cancelled. All students and tutors were informed and all deposits were refunded. The organising committee were very sad that they had to disappoint our members but messages received indicate that members understood the need and welcomed the early decision before the lockdown was announced. We look forward to planning the 2021 summer school.
