The Arts – Events

This section has been established to keep members interested in ‘The Arts’ informed of events happening in our area that may be of interest to them. This has originated in response to Ashfield Council’s attempt to create more cultural activity for residents in our locality. Most notifications will be self booking although there may occasionally be organised visits.
Items will be included that are brought to our attention including, music, painting, drama and films plus visits to places of cultural interest. Events will be notified in the Newsletter as well as on the Hucknall U3A website ( ).
