The U3A Music Group meets on the second Friday of each month from September to June inclusive in Alveston Methodist Church at 10.30am. The church is spacious and there is plenty of room if you just want to turn up on the day. There is a charge of £3 per meeting for visitors. Membership for the season (10 meetings) is £14.
We aim to have 8 of the 10 meetings as live performances from soloists and groups drawn from the local area and on occasions from wider afield. The June meeting is always in a Desert Island Discs format.
Committee: Jos Gregson (411652), Alan Purssord (Treasurer) (501438), Phil Holland (413897), Val Ingram (614404), Elizabeth Smith (418695), Megan Walden (413524)
