The U3A (University of the Third Age) is a non religious and non
political organisation. Its
charitable purpose is the advancement of education, and in
particular the education of older people and those who are retired
from full time work, by all means including associated activities
conducive to learning and personal development.
No entry qualifications are needed and no qualifications given.
The U3A is different from most other adult learning organisations.
Rather than paying people to teach, members are encouraged to share
their knowledge and talents with other members. As a result
interest groups are formed covering a wide range of topics and
activities as shown on the left. Groups meet during the day at
various venues in the village. Group leaders give their time
voluntarily as no one in our U3A is paid.
Balsall Common U3A has over 350 members and 33 interest groups. We
have a monthly core meeting on the first Thursday afternoon of each
month with a guest speaker. Meetings start at 2pm. at St. Peters
Hall, Holly Lane, Balsall Common, which has easy wheelchair access,
free off road parking, and an induction loop for those who use a
The cost of membership for 2019 is £12.50 per year (£8.00 if you
join after 31st May) with some groups making a
small additional charge to cover the cost of room hire and
We offer the opportunity to make new friends, learn a new skill,

and see us?
