Welcome to Warrington U3A
Warrington U3A is part of a UK-wide movement that brings together people to develop their interests in a friendly and informal environment. It’s all voluntary. U3A members draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other. There are no exams to pass, it is all just for pleasure. Learning is for its own sake with enjoyment being the prime motive, not qualifications or awards. We are one of over a thousand U3As across the UK, with thousands of interest groups between them and more than 425,000 members nationally.

Warrington U3A has around 1000 members and is home to over fifty activity groups covering many different subjects, from Art to Ukulele and everything in between. Members are not defined by a particular age; it is just that period after you have finished working full-time and are looking to get more out of life.
As well as interest groups, we also meet on the first Wednesday of most months at 2pm at Winmarleigh House, Winmarleigh Street, Warrington for our regular monthly General Meeting, enjoying a variety of interesting speakers, sharing a tea or coffee afterwards and catching up with friends. New or prospective members are invited to attend this very sociable event where they can meet the leaders of the various groups and perhaps join any that interest them.
