Activities Timetable

NDA U3A has around 100 groups – everything from art to zumba, including astronomy, languages, bridge, Shakespeare, history, walking (all levels), wine tasting and many more.

We are always looking for ways to provide our members with more variety, or to begin 2nd (or even 3rd) groups where there is a waiting list. So if you have a passion or an interest that isn’t on the list, and would like to share this with others, come and talk to our Groups Coordinator.

Please note that most of our activities are currently suspended in line with Government advice related to COVID-19. But this will give you a flavour of what we do when things get back to normal.

* Please note that groups marked with an asterisk meet weekly, including a 5th week when that occurs

** Sequence Dance 2 meets on 1st, 3rd and 5th Thursdays.

NB: there are several groups which do not conform with a monthly programme - they are listed in a separate table following the Activities table.
