Thame & District

Meetings, Visits, Tours & Other Events

Thame & District U3A meets on a fortnightly basis on the first and third Wednesday in Saint Mary's Church, Thame from 10.00 am to midday. We start with any welfare matters followed by a visiting speaker for, usually an hour, and then any updates on group events. Tea or coffee is then available for members.

The programme of speakers is detailed under Meetings in the table below and as links on this page. Previous years meetings (2013/14 to 2017/18) are available as a link on the Notices page.

Day visits, study tours and other events are shown below under their respective headings and on the appropriate Groups page.
