The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a voluntary, self-help organisation located throughout the UK and overseas. It is run for and by people who want to keep active in mind and body when they are no longer working full time. It is about involvement in learning new things, expanding horizons, sharing skills and experiences, making new friends, helping others to learn, accepting new challenges to show that age need be no barrier to learning or to helping others to learn. And to enjoy – if it’s not fun, it’s not U3A! No entry qualifications, no examinations, just the joy of learning in a friendly environment. If we’re going to live longer, let’s make the most of it. There is no upper age limit on curiosity! We believe learning need never stop and should be a pleasure.

Modernist Hampstead Architecture
We have arranged a guided visit of the exteriors of some of the revolutionary Modernist homes and idealistic architecture built in Hampstead in the 1930s such as The Sun House by Maxwell Fry, and 66 Frognal by Connel Ward and Lucus. Much of this architecture echoed design trends in Europe but elements of eighteenth-century architectural design were also an influence for some architects. We will see some more recent examples, and, in passing, some striking non-modernist Hampstead buildings. Click here for full details.
On Sunday 1st July there will an outing to Ightham Mote and Tonbridge. Booking is now open. Cost – £22.50 or £32.50 for non NT members. See Far Away Day page for more details and a booking form
