Bookham and District U3A
Bookham and District University of the Third Age

Welcome to the Bookham & District U3A Web Site

The U3A is a unique and exciting self help educational movement for middle aged and older people no longer in full time employment which enables members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. Please navigate around the site to find out all about us, our groups and activities.

“U3A” is an acronym for The University of the Third Age…….. …….a Movement that is Worldwide and Bookham has been a part of since 1993.

We operate under the auspices of the Third Age Trust, which is the National representative body for our organisation in the UK , but like all of the U3As we are autonomous. We provide an opportunity to pursue life long learning and members are encouraged to use their skills and abilities for the benefit of others and to develop new interests. We have over 80 study groups covering a wide range of educational and leisure pursuits, meeting in members' homes or designated venues. We currently have over 700 members.

General Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month, 2.30 p.m. at the Old Barn Hall, Bookham when there is a speaker, a small amount of business and a chance to chat with fellow members over a cup of tea. Future General Meetings are listed below.
