U3A is a lifelong learning organisation for anyone no longer in full-time employment and, if you would like to find out more, we will be holding an open day later this month.

The Crouch End and District (CED) U3A Open Day takes place on Thursday, 30th May, at Hornsey Vale Community Centre in Mayfield Road from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

With over 1,000 members, CED U3A is a friendly and welcoming organisation built around the skills, knowledge and life experiences of its members and offers a wide range of activities including talks from expert speakers, interest groups, quizzes, coffee mornings, ceilidhs, summer parties and other social and leisure activities.

Although many members are from Crouch End and Muswell Hill, we are keen to increase range and diversity and would welcome new members from other parts of the borough and surrounding areas. We are a registered charity and annual membership is just £30 or £5 for those on benefits. CED U3A is also a mutual aid organisation with no paid staff so all members are encouraged to contribute and help out in whatever way they can.

U3A is your third age: when, leaving full-time work, you have more opportunity to get out, learn new things, meet new people in your local area, keep your brain and body active and, importantly, have fun. It is a non-religious and non-political international movement designed to bring people together to develop their interests and continue learning in an informal environment. In the UK there are over 1000 local U3A branches with 44 in London alone.

The open day is an opportunity to find out about the movement and all the activities that CED U3A offers. The Hornsey Vale Community Centre is easily accessible for those with mobility issues and on bus routes W3 and W5 with 44, 91 and 144 nearby.
