Reading u3a

Reading u3a is a learning co-operative of older people, which enables members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. Activities are organised mainly in small groups that meet regularly, sometimes in each other's homes. It is a member of The Third Age Trust. It pursues a wide range of topics; some academic, some practical and others recreational.

  • All day-time meetings 
  • Various venues across Reading 
  • A wide variety of interest groups 
  • Theatre visits & other outings

We're just one of many local u3a organisations all over the UK, which are charities in their own right and are run entirely by volunteers.

Local u3a are learning cooperatives which draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members to organise and provide a wide range interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

The teachers learn and the learners teach.
