u3a Learning Events

The u3a relationship with leading organisations, built up over many years, has meant we are in a position to offer selected national events online ensuring that learning is still available to our u3a's and their members. This includes events with the National Gallery, Royal Institution, Guildhall Art Gallery, and the British Library (for which there may be a charge).

We are also offering a number of workshops, webinars and interactive sessions delivered by members for members, which are free to join.

Don't forget u3a also runs many projects, initiatives and competitions available for all members to get involved in.
