Thame & District

Groups, Events & Visits

Thame & District U3A has established a range of Groups covering Educational, Social and Physical activities. Groups are run by the members. To join one of these Groups, individuals must be members of Thame & District U3A or another local U3A.

Enquiries about current Groups (or about forming new Groups) can be directed to Edward Bray, the Groups Co-Ordinator, from the Contact page.


Although the activities of most Groups have had to be suspended since the Covid-19 lock down commenced in March 2020 and people were barred from meeting outdoors or inside, some Groups have been able to recommence some of their activities by using Zoom video conferencing or email messaging. Please view individual Group pages for further information.

The position remains under review and Thame & District U3A wants to restore normal service (or as close as possible to normal) as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thame & District U3A is also interested to offer its members new groups which can be established either during the current period of restrictions on gatherings, or after they have been lifted. We would therefore welcome suggestions from members, particularly from anyone with a skill or interest to share with others. We are especially keen to find people with foreign language skills to supplement the 6 classes already held in 3 languages.


A new group (the Jigsaw Group) has been set up during this period to provide a local jigsaw exchange among U3A members. Further details can be viewed on the Group's page.


Links to details of the Groups are shown below.

  • Groups with space for more members to join have a light grey background
  • Groups that are full are indicated by a darker grey background
  • New Groups are indicated by a yellow background
