How to Join & Renew

The Bury St Edmunds U3A is a self-help group of people who are no longer in full-time paid employment. We were founded in 1988 and have a membership of over 900.

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 choosing. Help in setting it up is available.

Our activities include:

  • A monthly lecture of educational interest, open to all members.
  • Specific-interest groups who meet at times of their own choosing. The groups frequently meet in each others houses so group sizes are necessarily small.
  • An annual Study Day on a nationally important topic, open to our members and other local U3As.
  • Educational visits and social/cultural events are organised throughout the year.
