Welcome to Islington U3A. We are a part of the
world-wide University of the Third Age (U3A), open to all
who are retired or semi-retired.
Membership of Islington U3A is open to people living in or around Islington who want to keep their minds sharp and get out and about learning new things, sparking new interests and meeting new people. Getting involved in Islington U3A enables people to expand their horizons, share skills and knowledge and help others to learn.
Annual General Meeting
Islington U3A will hold its first
AGM on 27 November. One important bit of business will
be the election of a new Steering Committee. For more
information, see What's On.
October saw the vast
majority of existing members rejoining as we started our
second year. We now have over 300 members, a new high, with
the number still rising. Of course members who have been
tardy in renewing can still do so.
Meetings and interest groups
Study and discussion groups are the core of
Islington U3A. There are 32 groups to join (with more on the
way), from Architecture, Art, Books and Crafts to
Scrabble, Theatre and Walks; click

We also have a monthly members' meeting, always with a high profile, interesting and entertaining speaker, and always with plenty of time to meet and chat to other iU3A members.
...is on November 27. Roberta Cremoncini, Director of the Estorick Gallery in Islington will talk about the Collection, which brings together works created by Italian artists during the first half of the twentieth century and is Britain's only gallery devoted to modern Italian art, renowned for its collection of Futurist works.
