Lifelong learning is an area of particular relevance to U3A organisations. We have several groups in this faculty, details of which can be viewed using the buttons at the foot of the page. We hope there will be a few that appeal to you.
To contact the convenors for the two groups below directly, please send an email as follows:

We read a mixture of recent and earlier biographies suggested by group members. These will often be available in paperback or on Kindle. Usually, one member introduces the selected book to start our discussions, which have been held on Zoom, during the past year.
Titles we have read recently include:
· In Extremis: Marie Colvin by Lindsey Hilsum
· Frida (Kahlo) by Hayden Herrara
· The Lives of Lee Miller by Anthony Penrose.
We will be restarting meeting in person from September 2021.
