Volunteer-led university to hold open day in Brighton

Posted On 24 Jul 2016 at 11:33 pm

Brighton and Hove University of the Third Age (U3A) is holding an open day tomorrow (Monday 25 July) at the Syndicate Wing of the Brighton Centre from 11am to 2pm. The entrance is in Russell Road, off West Street, Brighton, and the hall is wheelchair accessible.

U3A is for people who are either retired or not working full-time. Learning is for fun and friendship not to gain formal qualifications.

There are over 60 interest groups, including local history, modern languages, art history, walking and wine appreciation, as well as an active social group that arranges a wide variety of outings.

Brighton’s U3A branch has more than 600 members and is part of an international volunteer-led movement for people who are not in full-time work and who wish to continue learning and share knowledge.

Membership of Brighton and Hove U3A is open to everyone in their third age, which is not defined by a particular age but by a period in life when members are no longer in full-time employment. It costs £35 a year to join as many groups as you like. Stewards will be available tomorrow to answer questions and talk in more depth about the offer.

U3A is a self-help, self-managed learning co-operative run by its members.
