Learn, Laugh and Live!

Are you recently - or indeed long - retired, or winding down from full-time employment and looking for new interests? Or to take up again the interests you’ve never had the time to pursue?

If you are in this so-called 'third age' and would like to learn some ‘new tricks’ – then read on, because this exciting new venture is for you.

The University of the Third Age is all about bringing like-minded people together in small interest groups to explore learning opportunities in almost every subject you can think of, from Aromatherapy to Zoology!

There are over 900 U3As in the UK with more than 350,000 members. Each one is run on a 'self-help' basis with individual groups deciding how to go about exploring something new, and sharing valuable life experience and expertise. There is no pressure to impose a formal learning pattern – it’s all about establishing an informal, enjoyable way to learn with and from each other about a topic of mutual interest.

Theatre Visits

The Mirror Cracked

by Agatha Christie

Salisbury Playhouse
2.15 pm Thursday 7 March 2019
£30.00 inclusive of transport

THIS EVENT NOW SOLD OUT. Please contact Margaret Barter by telephone or via the contact page on the website if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.


The Remains of the Day

18th April - 2:30pm - Oxford Playhouse.

£31.50 inclusive of transport. The reserved stall seats are on the ground floor and are easily accessible.

A deeply atmospheric drama about time and memory, loneliness and longing, The Remains of the Day depicts the morally-compromised truth behind a world of manicured gardens, formal dinners and grand houses. As the fires rage through England during and after the Second World War, we get an intimate glimpse into one man’s half-lived life, realised too late.

Please contact Margaret Barter by telephone or via the contact page on the website if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

Motoring Matters >>> Motoring Matters

Group convener John Turton recently organised a group visit to the new Aerospace Bristol Museum, home of the last Concorde supersonic passenger aircraft to fly. A departure from the auto scene you might think, but full of technical interest and the history of the Bristol company, that also built a range of luxury cars. In planning now are potential visits to the Gaydon Motor Museum and to Brooklands, watch this space for further details.

Lunchtime 'Motoring Matters Natters' will be themed around current motoring topics allowing members to have their say and ask questions of the group. Members will be encouraged to share their motoring experiences and expertise with the rest of the group and special guest speakers will be invited to present to the group on topical subjects.
