Explore, discover and share with Tonbridge U3A

It’s never too late to learn something new

What is The U3A?

U3A is the University of the Third Age. We are all about being involved in physical and mental interests for anyone not in full time work. The U3A is non-profit & self-help, run by members. Each U3A is independent and usually a registered charity. In the UK we have 985+ U3As with 360,000+ members. Groups vary in their level of academic involvement.

Benefits of the U3A

You can expect to have great fun and enjoy life to the full, exercise you brain and/or your body. Make many long lasting friendships by joining one or more friendly interest groups. You can explore, discover and share your passion and informally learn or absorb new interests. You can enjoy interesting subjects.

About Tonbridge U3A

We have over 1,100 members from the area, with over 100 interest groups - the life blood of the U3A. We hold monthly meetings which are open to all members. We have our Open Day on the first Wednesday of September - members and the public can talk to group organisers. We organise an annual holiday trip, day visits and theatre trips.
