North Norfolk U3A Home Page

U3A is a university in the older, original sense of people coming together for the pleasure of learning and sharing knowledge. There are no examinations and the only qualification for joining is a desire to learn and/or teach with others who have similar interests.  


The North Norfolk U3A caters for retired or semi-retired people and it is run as a voluntary, self-help organisation; with a membership of circa 700.  It is one of some 960 autonomous U3As in the UK. North Norfolk U3A geographically encompasses Fakenham, Holt, Sheringham and Cromer as well as all their outlying villages.


Members form groups to learn or share their knowledge in areas such as languages, history, art appreciation, music, computers and digital photography. Group meetings are friendly and informal and typically take place in the daytime at weekly, fortnightly or monthly intervals, usually in a member's home, often on a rota basis, or at a local hall.


 Outdoor activities include walking and birdwatching. There are also discussion forums and groups playing bridge and mah-jong. Visits to places of interest, either group-based or open to everyone, are arranged periodically. 


Members also have the opportunity most months of attending an event as part of a programme of talks, coffee mornings and lunches. These combine refreshments and social time with a talk or presentation given by an external speaker or one of our members.
