Current Interest Groups
Interest groups are at the core of Islington U3A and reflect the knowledge, skills and expertise of our members. 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. Click on any group below to learn more. You can see which groups are full by looking at Beacon.
