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.

A pilot scheme on this subject last year by the University of Kent identified many hundreds of plays produced during WW1. The next stage is to trace the playwrights, research the performance histories across the country and delve into the individual theatres etc.
The U3A having a defined role in this research – in the form of a shared learning project.
This research will probably be of particular interest to our drama and history groups, but any member may apply.
Click for the flyer and a general application form. It would be helpful if potential volunteers could state that they are U3A members on the form.
The following groups are looking for extra members:
- NLU3A Portrait Studio
- Festin ente (Latin)
- French Literature
- Arts and Craft
and we are planning a possible new group:
- Spanish – lower intermediate
