We offer an opportunity for those no longer in full time work to come together and make the most of life, by exploring new ideas, skills and interests with like-minded people.

If you think u3a is just about knitting and chatting for older folks, think again! We have around 200 special interest Groups covering a range of interests including music, sports, technology, history, arts, science, languages and much more.

Plus we offer a programme of activities, talks, social events and trips that are open to all members of Wokingham u3a. There’s surely something to suit most people.  If not, we can help start up new groups, so the world is your oyster.

Wokingham u3a is run by members, for members, and we always love to hear from anyone who can volunteer a little of their time to help us 'behind the scenes'. It's a great way to get involved.

Further Information

Wokingham u3a (Wu3a), founded in 1990, became a registered charity in 1991.  It has grown very rapidly over the years and the current membership is approximately 2000.  There are around 200 educational and recreational groups, who meet in members’ homes or in larger venues in and around Wokingham. This includes groups specifically for Members On Their Own (MOTO).

Our monthly afternoon meetings take place on the third Tuesday of the month at 2.30pm at St Paul’s Parish Rooms, Wokingham, to which a speaker is invited. These run from September through to May. The entrance fee for these meetings is £2.00 and includes a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits.

There is also a coffee morning every Tuesday morning at Bar+Block, Winnersh, which is a great opportunity to meet others and find out more about what's on offer. 

All administrative and study group activities in Wokingham u3a are carried out on a completely voluntary and unpaid basis. Committee members are elected annually by local members at their AGM. Although called a University, no academic qualifications are required or given. Those who teach are also those who learn and all are members the University of the Third Age.

The Wokingham u3a Committee has taken a policy decision that only fully paid up members can participate in any Wokingham u3a activity, including Interest Groups. The only exception to this policy is that a non-member can attend one Wokingham u3a Monthly Afternoon and Evening Meeting, before being required to apply for Membership.

NB. Numbers at St Paul’s Parish Rooms, Wokingham are limited by fire regulations and unfortunately there can be no admittance once the hall is full.
