Books Boots Paints


Interest groups are at the core of Islington U3A and reflect the knowledge, skills and expertise of members. iU3A already has over 30 groups to offer. The topics range from crafts to philosophy, from local walks to global history. Many groups are based on equal participation, while others (for example the language groups) have an expert leader. A majority of groups meet in members’ homes, providing a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. All groups are informal - inspired and enthused by their members.

New Groups

We regularly consider proposals for new groups. Obviously when we do so we are keen to know whether members would be interested in joining a proposed group.

Currently we have proposals for a Chamber Music Group, and for a Science Fiction Book Group. If you might be interested in joining one of these, for more information and to let us know of your interest, click here

Also, we are still trying to find coordinators for new French conversation groups - both advanced and beginners. If anyone has any suggestions please email to let us know.

We are also always interested in considered proposals for new groups. To learn more, click here
