The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a nationwide organisation based on local groups providing opportunities for retired and semi-retired people to come together and develop their interests.  We’re not a university in the traditional sense.  We don’t study for qualifications, and there are no qualifications necessary to join.  A U3A is a learning co-operative of equals.  In the words of Peter Laslett, a founder member of the U3A movement, “Those who teach shall also learn and those who learn shall also teach”.  We just enjoy taking part and meeting people.

Holywood U3A was set up in 2013 and we now have approximately 270 members who join the various interest groups. We draw on the strengths and enthusiasms of all our members who share their knowledge and skills with one another.  There are learning opportunities, outdoor pursuits, social events and outings on offer including anything from history to gardening to theatre trips.

Monthly meetings are held on the last Friday in every month in the Queens Leisure Complex.  The speakers booked for these meetings cover a variety of topics and there is always a welcoming “cuppa” which allows time to meet and chat to other members.

The annual subscription is currently £20, which is reviewed annually.   No member of the U3A can benefit financially from their membership – it is all voluntary.  Members going on outings do contribute to the cost.  The monthly newsletter provides Holywood U3A news and information as well as details of U3A events.  This is posted on the website.

The Holywood U3A is a registered Charity and is conscious of its duties as a Charity to the public and to conform to the Charities Order. NIC100647

Come and learn with us and have fun at the University of the Third Age!
