Monthly Meetings which are free for members

are held at 2:30 pm

Emmanuel Church, Forest Road


Charnwood U3A has a general meeting once a month, on the second Wednesday at 2:30pm, where a brief business meeting is followed by the main business of hearing an invited speaker.  Around a 100 members attend the meetings and after the talk you are welcome to stay and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit.

Next Monthly Meeting - Wednesday 13th November 2019

Taught not Caught

with Rt Hon Nicky Morgan



Assuming that she hasn't been elected Prime Minister our MP should be on parliamentary recess at this time.

She will not talk politics but will talk about why she believes that building characterful children has a positive impact on academic achievement.

Please do not arrive before 2.00pm and make sure you bring your PURPLE membership card with you.


You will be aware that parking in front of the church is very limited but there are other church-owned parking opportunities nearby.

Please sign in at the U3A desk inside the church if you park in one of these church parking spaces.


Details of the new programme of meetings for the 2019/2020 U3A year are now available. A printable calendar of talks can be found by clicking here while an alternative version which gives more detail of each of the proposed talks can be found by clicking here.


On Wednesday 11th December 2019 we have been fortunate to book Loughborough University Students' Choir.

They are very highly valued and we can look forward to a wonderful afternoon of entertainment.
