Welcome to Beeston u3a

Are you retired or semi-retired ?

Come to Beeston u3a and:

* Have fun * Learn new things * Develop new interests * Make new friends *

u3a is a large national organisation, created in 1982. There are more than 1000 member groups nationally. 

Membership of u3a is open to everyone in their third age – this is not defined by a particular age, but by a period in life in which full time employment has ceased. There is no upper or lower age limit.

Members explore new ideas, skills and activities together – they draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other. There are no qualifications involved – it is just for pleasure. And it is all voluntary, run by members for other members. 

It should come as no surprise to local people that the Beeston branch is extremely well supported, with 800+ members, a lively programme of monthly open meetings and more than 80 interest groups, operating for more than 10 years.

Many of our groups are fully active again since lockdown – some meeting in person, some remaining online and some offering both options. The latest information is listed on our GROUPS page. 

All activities have the support of Group Facilitators, Group Co-ordinators and national advice from the Third Age Trust to ensure members stay well informed and safe.

Monthly Open meetings are held at 10am for 10:30am on the first Thursday of every month at The Methodist Church, Chilwell Road. Wherever possible we will endeavour to offer a Zoom link as well.

New members are always welcome!

We hold a monthly coffee morning welcome event for new and prospective members on the second Thursday of each month from 10.30 to 11.30 at The Flour Brewer in Chilwell High Road.
