St Albans U3A is a self-help organisation run entirely by its members who organise a very wide range of activities. There are more than 130 Groups covering arts and crafts, history, languages, sports and much more. Members also organise social events, outings, theatre trips and holidays.

We normally hold meetings and talks twice a month, on Wednesdays at Marlborough Road Methodist Church and on Tuesdays at the YMCA Gym, Russet Drive, Highfield . These meetings are an opportunity to meet fellow members, catch up on the latest news, browse the Groups and Trips notice boards and borrow books and jigsaw puzzles.

We have a varied programme of talks given by invited speakers - see the Meetings and Talks page for more details. Members attending the talks are encouraged to give feedback to the Speaker Secretary, who organises the talks, or to any member of the Executive Committee.  Suggestions for future speakers - including U3A members who would be interested in giving a talk on their 'specialist subject' - are also very welcome.

Three times a year we publish our U3Alife newsletter. You can submit contributions - articles on group activities, creative writing, poetry, musings on life in general - to the editor, Hazel Eggleton; the deadline is usually a month before publication. You can also submit items to the Webmaster for publication on the Members' News page of this website; they will also be considered for inclusion in U3Alife.
