Thu Mar 22nd Why not brighten up the dreary late winter days and come along to our Murder Mystery and Cultural event at Llanfairfechan Town Hall?

We will start the day with a Murder Mystery play courtesy of Penmaenmawr U3A Drama Group. This will give you an opportunity to exercise the little grey cells as you and your team try to work out whodunit. We will break for a buffet lunch (included in the ticket price) and will then reconvene to discover who committed the murder. The rest of the afternoon will be devoted to an introduction to Bollywood dancing, and anyone who fancies themselves as a budding Bollywood star will have the opportunity to have a go.

Tickets are priced at £8 per member, which includes all of the entertainment, lunch and tea and coffee. To book please contact your U3A who will be sending a group booking form for their members.

Mon Dec 31st Lampeter University Workshops 2018

Newcastle Emlyn U3A organised a Philosophy Workshop at the University which prompted the University of Lampeter to organise their own workshops by their different Departments for this coming year, Covering Ancient History, Anthropology Archaeology, Politics & Culture, & Philosophy.

The workshops are open to everyone, but all U3A members are invited. Lampeter University is doing all the organisation and responsibility. This will be a new venture for our local university and we hope it will encourage many more Universities and Colleges to have public workshops. Although not specific for the U3A we do hope many members will apply. Full details, costs and how to book can be found at "
