Welcome to Barnsley and District u3a



Barnsley and District u3a: What is it and what does it do? How can I join?

We are part of a national organisation dedicated to the promotion of education, leisure and knowledge among people who have entered the “Third Age” of their life. People with a lifetime of experience share their knowledge and passion for a whole range of activities and hobbies. It is open to anyone who is no longer in full time employment.

Currently, we have over 1,200 members and 125 activity groups covering a huge array of activities. These are run by members themselves using their own knowledge or expertise.

For more details of the activities available and a detailed schedule go to the Groups tab.
