A message from the chair

The University of the Third Age is a learning co-operative for post retirement  people from all walks of life. The U3A is a national organisation and registered charity. There are over 500 branches throughout the country.

Banstead U3A was founded in 1985. It s objective is to be a university in the original sense a community of people sharing interests and enthusiasms. No qualifications are required and none are given.

We aim to fulfill a gap by providing accessible and stimulating opportunities for self development at a stage in life when people can expect to have a little more time for expanding their interests.

We have a wide range of over forty groups studying a wide variety of interests such as languages, various arts and crafts, reading groups, science, social studies, philosophy, aspects of history, bridge, computing, table tennis, scrabble, walking and many more.

Most groups meet in people's homes, but some larger groups meet in local halls. Each year we hold four open meetings when we invite speakers to speak to us on a range of topics. This year marks our 25th anniversary and we are arranging a number of events to mark the achievement.
