Bookham & District u3a

Bookham U3A has been part of the U3A family since 1993.  Regular monthly meetings are held at the Barn Hall, visitors are welcome but it is preferable if you can email the secretary beforehand at

A number of groups also meet at the Barn Hall, at members home or out and about.  More information on the groups can be found on the Groups page. Please contact the Group Administrator who can give you further details, and often arrange for a trial visit.

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. 

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 70 study groups covering a wide range of educational and leisure pursuits, meeting in members' homes or designated venues. We currently have around 500 members with over 50 members of other Local U3As attending one or more of our groups.

If you are a member but have not yet set up a password to enable you to login, you will only be able to access some of the pages and have limited access to much of the information. A guide to how to set up a password can be viewed by clicking here. Just remember that your user name is your surname followed by the first letter of your first name, with no space between. John Doe would be DoeJ. If you have a common name this could lead to duplication of a username, in which case a second letter from your first name may be necessary. Email if you are having problems. 

Members will not normally need to pre-book for monthly meetings except for ticketed events such as Christmas meeting.  For Zoom meetings it will be necessary to pre-book using the information sent by email in advance of the meeting. Events normally have to be booked and paid for in advance.

Members of other U3As are welcome to join the activities of our groups, providing there is room in the group.
