U3A (The University of the Third Age) is a UK-wide movement which brings together people in their ‘third age’ to develop their interests and continue their learning in a friendly and informal environment.
If you’re wondering what is meant by the third age - it is a time after you have finished working full-time or raising your family and have time to pursue your interests or just try something new.
U3A has a ‘university’ of members who draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other but there are no qualifications to pass – it is just for pleasure. Learning is its own reward.
It's all voluntary; a typical U3A will be home to many activity groups covering hundreds of different subjects - from art to zoology and everything in between.
Formed over 30 years ago, there are now over 1,000 U3As across the UK, with thousands of interest groups between them and more than 400,000 members nationally - plus numbers are growing every day.
So when is it happening?
U3A is coming to Priors Hall Park, Weldon, on Wednesday 16th October 2019. If you would like to go along then visit Priors Hall Park Community Centre, Gretton Road, Corby NN17 5EB for a 2pm start.
This will be an informal event with Tea, coffee and biscuits.
We are a group for retired and semi-retired people, and we share learning, fun and friendship in a vibrant, enjoyable and varied way. Members suggest and organise interest groups in a wide variety of subjects and activities, both educational and social.
Put the date in your Diary!
