The doors open at 1.15pm with the talk starting at 1.45pm. After the talk, refreshments are served and there is an opportunity to book an outing, speak to some of the group leaders, browse the book stall, etc.

If you are not yet a member of Ware U3A, you are more than welcome to join us at one of the monthly meetings; we make a small charge of £2 which is deducted from the membership fee if you decide to join.

Thu Aug 1st Private Lives by Noel Coward At The Mill Sonning. A Matinee at 2.30pm. Full
Another opportunity to spoil yourself with a return to The Mill, Sonning for an inclusive two course lunch before settling down to enjoy Noel Coward’s comedy of manners PRIVATE LIVES. The time is 1930, Deauville, France. After a tumultuous marriage the divorced couple, Elyot and Amanda, find themselves in adjacent suites while honeymooning with their new partners - Sybil and Victor – respectively. The view of shimmering sea and moonlight from their adjoining balconies is so romantic ....... until old passions reignite ! The inevitable result is the estranged lovers running away together to flirt and fight in Paris before being tracked down by their jilted spouses - with explosive and hilarious consequences. Noel Coward, the master, at his best.
