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. Quite a new part actually,
we are not yet a year old, but thriving and proud of all we
ave achieved in such a short time.
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.
Study and discussion groups are the core of Islington U3A. There are about 35 groups to join, from Architecture, Art, Books and Crafts to Scrabble, Theatre and Walks; click here to learn more.
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.
