About Slough U3A


The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a learning co-operative of older people, which enables members to enjoy and share educational, creative and leisure activities. There are now more than a thousand U3A groups in the United Kingdom.

Slough U3A was inaugurated in September 2015, so we are a comparatively new U3A group. We are still building our base of members and activities; we welcome new members.

We have a general meeting once per month in central Slough. Each meeting starts with a speaker who will address us for 30 to 40 minutes on a topic of general interest. After this, refreshments are served and there is an opportunity for guests to find out more about our activities and to sign up if you are interested.

Non-members are welcome at general meetings, although we do ask you to become a member if you wish to attend regularly.

The meetings at St Andrews’s Church Hall Merton Road, Slough SL1 1QW usually take place on the third Wednesday of each month, at 2 pm. Click on Meetings for more information.

Activity groups meet in between the general meetings, sometimes in a member’s house, sometimes in a hall or a library. Our rapidly expanding list of activities include Art Appreciation, Crafts, Walking, Cookery, Film & Theatre, Current Affairs, Creative Writing, Local History, French, Spanish, Reading & Books, Play Reading, Wine Appreciation, with more activities in the pipeline. You must be a member of the U3A if you wish to participate in one of the interest or activity groups. Members learn from each other, sharing their knowledge, skills and experience. Click on Activity Groups to  find out more.

Membership of Slough U3A is £20 which is used to pay for meeting costs, subscription to our quarterly magazine “Third Age Matters”, insurance etc. If you join now, membership runs until 31 August 2018.
