Give us a try

You are welcome to come to any of our monthly meetings as a non-member to find out more about us and to meet some members. If you don't know anyone, please let us know at the door and we'll arrange some introductions. There is a £2 entrance fee for non-members which helps us cover speaker and refreshment costs. That fee is waived if you sign up for membership at the meeting.

Also, some groups - notably those that do not meet in members' homes - are happy to welcome potential new members on a trial basis. Please contact the relevant group leader (via the group pages) to find out more.

Associate membership

We welcome members that already belong to another u3a. We charge a reduced subscription per year since we do not have to pay the national organisation a capitation fee and we will not deliver a copy of the national magazine (since you will get one from your 'home' u3a).

We will, however, require proof of u3a membership. For example, a copy of your membership card or a confirmation from your membership secretary.
