Weymouth & Portland

Interest Groups

Weymouth & Portland U3A offers a variety of groups run by and for its members.
One of the U3A's founding principles is that we are a group of people where all members take part in the process of informally educating and being educated through mutually sharing, with other members, our skills and knowledge we have all acquired during our lifetime.

Our current list of groups is shown below, click on the group name for more details.
Please contact the Group Leader for that group direct if you wish to join or require more information.
Some groups meet in members' homes, others meet in venues where a small charge is made to cover the hire of the hall.
If you want an overview of groups on a monthly basis, click of the link opposite.

Non-members can attend one taster session but must be a member to continue.

New groups are formed as required by members and we always welcome and encourage the formation of new groups and new subjects. We also welcome members willing to be new group leaders.
To find out more about putting ideas forward for possible new groups, starting a new group or offering to be a Group Leader please visit the Group News page

If you have a general enquiry about our U3A groups please contact Caz, Groups Coordinator

Help to keep our U3A vibrant and fun: Be involved.

DORCHESTER U3A have theatre a trip on 19th September (An Inspector Calls Southampton) If interested please see their website on Group page for theatre trips

Members please note: the reciprocal arrangement between Dorchester U3A and Weymouth & Portland U3A will cease from the end of August 2019. If Weymouth & Portland U3A members wish to attend groups in Dorchester U3A you will need to be a member of the Dorchester U3A and vice versa.
