The ethos of the U3A (University of the Third Age) is to provide lifelong learning for people in their third age.  Third age is defined as the time after one has retired from full time work, or finished bringing up a family. Balsall Common U3A is now in its 12th year, the emphasis of the group is to learn, laugh and live.

Our group leaders give their time and expertise voluntarily. No qualifications are required and none are awarded. The cost for membership in the first year is £16 per year.  Some activity groups make a small charge per session. The U3A offers the opportunity to make new friends, learn a new skill, visit places of interest or take up a new hobby

There are now over 320 members and 33 different groups. Activity groups meet at various venues in the village. We have a Core Meeting on the First Thursday of each month which includes a Guest Speaker. All Core Meetings are held at the St Peters Hall, Holly Lane Balsall Common.
