Groups looking for new members

Various NLU3A groups are actively looking for new members. Some operate face to face and some on Zoom. If you are interested, please contact the group co-ordinator concerned for more information. Details can be found on the Groups page of the website, or by clicking the group title.

New groups looking for members

Climate, Science & Society is looking for some additional members as it restarts in September. Barry Campbell has agreed to take on the challenge of following in the footsteps of Jeff Duckett, who so ably led the group for many years. Barry and a small steering group are currently planning the programme for the autumn, and the group will be meeting twice monthly on the first and third Thursday of the month from 10.30-12.00 in N3. If you are interested, or would like to know more, please contact Barry –

Creative Writing and Philosophy

These are two subjects for which we  don’t currently have groups, and we would welcome knowing if there is any interest in starting either of them. Please contact Henrietta Cohen to express your interest at

Current Affairs group: If you might be interested in joining a new group on current affairs, please contact Henrietta Cohen at The group’s meeting day, time, venue and format will all be decided democratically once there is a nucleus of members.

The Out and About group: Want to get out and about with others, either during the week or at the weekend? Our idea is to plan, by e-mail group, any members’ suggestions for meet-ups: Sunday lunch, coffee mornings, cinema trips, visits to places of interest. If you have been wondering if NLU3A offers evening or weekend activities, for example, then this is definitely the group for you! Contact Denise Hopkins at or Candiss Waldram  at

Theatre Visits group: The first outing of this new group will be on Thursday 4 April to see The Divine Mrs S at the Hampstead Theatre, the matinee performance at 2.30pm. This play is about Sarah Siddons, the most renowned female actor of her day. If you would like to know more about how to join, please contact either Sarah Wrightson at or Helen Roberts at

Beginner’s Bridge group: If you are a beginner and you would like to try learning bridge, please contact Henrietta Cohen at

Away Days and Further Away Days

Don’t forget that Away Days and Further Away Days are ‘open’ groups, meaning that you don’t need to be a member of the group to attend an event. However, if there is an outing which you would like to go on, you will need to register your interest each time with the group coordinator, together with payment for any entry charges, if these are required.
