Angel Book Club

Wed 1 Jun @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 2:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

With a shared obsession and love of reading, we are a small group who thoroughly enjoy discussing a diverse range of books. We have no set genre. One of the joys we find of being in a book group is reading books we wouldn’t necessarily choose.

Book Club 3

Wed 1 Jun @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 2:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

Our aim is to promote friendship amongst u3a members through reading. The group does not have a formal leader, but functions as an informal co-operative. Each monthly meeting is led by the member who suggested the book for that month. At the moment we are holding our meetings using Zoom, but once it is more Covid safe a convenient face-to-face meeting place will be established. A quarterly reading list is assembled from suggestions submitted by members of the group. Over…

We have read through, in translation, Aeschylus’s Oresteia trilogy, and are moving on to glance at Sophocles’ Electra, then to read Euripides’s play of the same name. We plan to go on to read some further plays with characteristically strong female characters, and some plays based on other aspects of the Trojan War. At our last session, we welcomed a visitor able to share more detailed knowledge of the Greek theatre and dramatists, and able to give us some examples…

Cinema Group 2

Thu 2 Jun @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 11:00 am on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

We are a group of like-minded people who enjoy movies. Meeting once a month, over a cup of coffee, we have the opportunity to share what movies we have seen and what is coming up. Due to the difficulties over the past 18 months, we have expanded our viewing to include streaming platforms such as Netflix. Time is also given for individuals to make a presentation to the group on aspects of the world of movies that are of particular…

Chaucer

We recommend the textbook of the same name published by Cambridge University Press.

An event every month that begins at 2:15 pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating indefinitely

We are a lively, informal group who meet fortnightly to read poems aloud over a cup of tea and a biscuit. Each person chooses a few poems on a pre-agreed topic and a brief discussion follows a reading. Topics include individual poets (Jackie Kay for example) or particular themes (Sun, Moon and Stars for example). And sometimes we try to read a longer poem ‘in the round’ (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner for example.) A waiting list is now…

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 2:00 pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating indefinitely

Writing and story-telling have played different roles in our lives, but we share a common love of words and stories, and a wish to improve our writing abilities. Each month, we write approximately 1500 words on an agreed topic, which we then read out at our monthly meeting. We are starting to feel comfortable enough to ask for and give feedback on the work. We don’t feel able to take in new members at the moment, but we would be…
