Registered Charity No. 803112


Welcome to the u3a in Bury St Edmunds

If you are no longer in full-time employment and have some time to spare, u3a is the organisation that will give you the chance to develop existing interests and explore new ones, while making new friends.

The u3a movement has been learning, staying active and having fun for 40 years – showcasing what it means to have a positive later life. You can read more here about the impact of the u3a on positive ageing.

Our members run more than 70 Interest Groups – ranging across the creative, the educational, the physical and the social.  From Walking to Wine Appreciation, Art to Antiques, Politics to Philosophy, Science to Shakespeare, Bridge to Current Affairs … the list goes on.  The Groups are self-chosen and run by the members themselves.

In addition, we offer a monthly programme of Talks at The Apex, as well as visits and social events throughout the year.

We are a friendly group of people who want to keep active, learning and socialising.

Come and join us!  

We welcome (but do not insist upon!) contributions from all. If you have some specialised knowledge, please do not keep it to yourself, but join and contribute to one of our groups. Or start a group of your own. The committee will help you – nothing is too niche. There’s very likely to be someone who’s interested in what you’re interested in.
