Whickham & District

Whickham and District U3A Groups

U3A groups are self-organising, and unless otherwise stated, meet on a regular basis where appropriate in members' own homes or in larger premises. They each have a Group Leader, who may or may not be an expert in the subject or activity, but who is willing to do some of the organisation.

Meetings may take place weekly/fortnightly or monthly, depending on the subject or activity and members' preferences. The groups which are currently running are listed below. Please click on a group name to find out more.

Due to these extraordinary times some Groups are meeting via Zoom. Sight and Sound, The Men's Group, Out n About and Humour (combined) and Genealogy. Please look at relevant pages re these Groups for contact details.

Three new groups have recently been formed during the past few months, all taking place on Zoom.

A History Group called 'Looking into the Past' taking place the 2nd Thursday of the month at 11am.
A Culture Group taking place on the 3rd Monday of the month at 1.30pm talking about books, films, newspaper articles.
Regional Creative Words- a creative writing group from members of various u3as around the Region. It takes place on the 4th Thursday of the month at 10.30 -12.30

Please contact Cecilia 0191 4148535 for further information about these new Groups.
