About U3A


Learn, laugh, live
with Newquay U3A

your local friendly organisation for retired and semi-retired people living in and around Newquay, Cornwall

The primary role of the U3A is to provide life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities for learning for semi-retired and retired people, either to gain new knowledge and insights or to expand on what they already have. New interests, entertainment and companionship are enjoyed, and members are encouraged to contribute by offering their own skills and knowledge to other members.

U3A  is an international organisation. The UK national office, which is at 52 Lant Street, London SE1 1RB, issues a periodic magazine and also stocks a wide and ever increasing range of learning aids to buy or borrow. Much of this material is from the Open University and is very well presented. We now also have a regional website featuring all the U3A groups in the south west.

NEWQUAY U3A is a self-help organisation.  Voluntary Group Leaders come from within Newquay U3A. Now in our 12th year, our present membership has grown to over 200.

Our Monthly Meetings

We have between 70 and 100 members attending the monthly meetings at the Lane Theatre on the outskirts of Newquay. Various Speakers are invited, to inform and entertain us, after our social get-together over refreshments.

Our Interest Groups

We have many interest groups covering a wide variety of subjects, meeting as required in various venues or at each others’ homes. The group meetings are organised by volunteers. New groups can be set up at any time by two or three members who share a common interest.
