 Our interest groups offer a programme of educational and leisure activities for retired people. Members contribute their own experience, interests and enthusiasms actively, so that they learn from each other.

The interest groups are the life blood of Towcester U3A. Their common feature is that they are all requested by members, not prescribed from outside and we rely on members to contribute their own experience, interests and enthusiasms actively, so that they learn from each other.

Educational qualifications are not required for admission and none are awarded. All you need is to be interested. Some groups have only 3 or 4 members, others a dozen or more. And if you have an interest that is not represented, you only have to ask around to find others who might share it, and that starts a new one.

Trips and Theatre visits. Details of any trips open to all members (not just individual groups) will normally be shown on the events page, but for latest details and full lists check the Tuba magazine and Bulletin on the Tuba page.
