Welcome

Welcome to our website.

u3a is a self help learning organisation for people who have completed their career or finished raising a family. Now is the time to make the most of your life. u3a gives you the chance to develop your interests, make new friends and enjoy yourself.

If you are not a member of a u3a group click here to find your nearest u3a group.

On this website you be able to discover details about our study days, representatives meetings and any other relevant information about this network of u3a groups.

Full details of the events listed below will be posted on this website and circulated to u3a’s   The lead- in time will vary as we try to cope with Covid 19 restrictions and still bring you an entertaining and educational calendar. Meanwhile please make a note of the dates in your diary if you are interested in attending.

As our events are regularly attracting over 200 participants it is becoming onerous on the organisers to manage them, we are now using Ticket Source for our bookings.

If you do not wish to book on line you can still complete the application form and post it with a cheque to the organiser.


Important Notice when using Ticket Source.

It is easy to use Ticket Source for any of our events where the Ticket Source button is displayed.

Once you have booked you will immediately receive a confirmation email giving you the booking reference number. Please note this email is from Ticket Source (displayed as below) and will not display u3a in the address bar.

Two days before the event you will receive an email from Ticket Source giving you the Zoom link for the event. Once again this email is generated by Ticket Source and will not show u3a in the address bar. It will only show “Additional information notification” in the subject bar. Please look out for emails from Ticket Source.

If you do not see the email from Ticket Source in your “In box” check your “junk/spam” folder in your email manager, as sometimes it is put into these.
