It will soon be time to relaunch the Monthly Meetings – and at a new venue too! – Watch this space!

For details of forthcoming meetings please see the ‘Monthly Meetings’ page. We will keep you updated as the situation evolves.
The u3a is a worldwide movement for people who are no longer in full-time employment. It was founded in Toulouse in France in 1972 and introduced to the UK in 1982. In the UK there are now over 1000 autonomous groups which are supported by a national body, the 3rd Age Trust.
There is no age limit for membership, no qualifications are needed to join and none are awarded.
Hucknall and District u3a was launched in 2008. We now have over 40 activity groups which are all led by u3a members who share knowledge, experience and skills with each other. Normally, groups meet during the day at various venues around Hucknall. There is a monthly meeting which is open to all members which usually features a guest speaker covering a wide range of topics and interests.
Since March 2020, things have been far from normal but many groups have continued by using Zoom for meetings, short course one-off events and the members’ monthly meeting. They have also kept in touch via the monthly newsletter, email, telephone and WhatsApp. For more information see our ‘Interest Groups’ page on this website.
