Thame & District

Meetings, Visits, Tours & Other Events

Thame & District U3A normally meets twice a month (on the first and third Wednesday) in Thame from 10.00 am until midday. The location of each meeting is shown against individual entries below. 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.

During the Covid lockdowns we provided a programme of on-line meetings through Zoom video conferencing. Although meetings in physical locations have recommenced, these meetings are also available through Zoom.

The forthcoming programme of speakers is detailed under Meetings in the table below.

Day visits, study tours and other events will be shown below under their respective headings and on the appropriate Groups pages.
