Warminster

Meetings and Events

We have a Monthly General Meeting for all members on the LAST Wednesday of every month at 2 pm (doors open at 1.40pm) in the newly-refurbished Civic Centre in the Western Car Park. The entry charge is £2 for members and for visitors.

We also have events and coach trips, which can be booked at our Monthly General Meetings.

Our Monthly General Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month with the exception of December, when instead we arrange a festive lunch during the month for any members to attend. The meetings, to which all members are invited, are held in the Civic Centre, Warminster and commence at 2.00pm and conclude at approximately 3.30pm with refreshments. The talks and presentations are entertaining, insightful and educational – not necessarily all at the same time! Do come along and meet your U3A friends, and perhaps make new friends, hear an interesting talk and ask the speaker questions. Please bring your Membership card with you as you may be asked to show it.

PROGRAMME FOR TALKS at GENERAL MEETINGS at 2p.m. Last Wednesday each month
