About Southampton U3A
2017 is the 25th anniversary year of Southampton U3A, which first met in the autumn of 1992. 35 people attended the first meeting. In the first year there were 23 Speaker Meetings and 10 Interest Groups were started. There are now around 500 members, around 60 groups and a wide range of interests.
Groups are one of the main activities of a U3A. We have around 60 groups covering many different topics. Groups are run by members for members. They are one of our most popular activities but if you find the groups you want to join are full, our Groups Co-ordinators can help you start a new one. You can find out more about our groups here.
Our monthly general meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month at St James Methodist Church Hall, Shirley. we have a varied program, with speakers on a wide range of subjects (details here)
The Social Committee arranges a varied programme of activities throughout the year (see newsletter for details) which offer opportunities to get to know other members.
We publish our bi-monthly newsletter at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September and November. The newsletter includes full details of local and national events, including signing–up information, as well as articles from members. The current newsletter is available here
