Groups

Interest Groups are an integral part of the U3A experience, and below you will find a list of those groups that our initial research identified as the most popular. More will evolve as the Crouch End & District U3A matures. New Group pages will added as and when information about them becomes available.

Where a group meeting is held in someone’s home and the host provides coffee, tea, biscuits etc, it is U3A convention to offer the host a small contribution to the cost. The current U3A policy is 50p.

I’D LIKE A GROUP ON …

We need your help to set up more groups. They happen only when people who volunteer to lead them. So, please, if you’d like just to discuss the possibility of convening a group, please complete the Groups Enquiry form at the bottom of this page.

Groups for which there’s much demand

•Eating out – pub lunches, or cafes/restaurants
•Exercise – pilates, yoga, walking football, petanque etc. We can perhaps find paid instructors for some of these, but the U3A ethos is to help each other
•Music – listening (both classical, opera and pop)
•Music – playing and singing
