Thame & District

Meetings, Visits, Tours & Other Events

Thame & District U3A normally meets twice a month (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 impact of the lockdown in March 2020 and subsequent restrictions led to these meetings being cancelled. However, since July 2020 we have provided a programme of on-line meetings presented through Zoom video conferencing.# Information about forthcoming Zoom meetings is provided below, together with a link for U3A members to reserve their places.

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 will be shown below under their respective headings and on the appropriate Groups page once they can recommence.
