Groups

Interest Groups are an integral part of the U3A experience, and below you will find a list of those groups that the Crouch End and District U3A currently offers.
 
Please note that if you would like to partake in the activities of any the groups, you must first join the group.
 
Please do not turn up at an event unless you are a member of the group. You may also be asked to show your membership card when you join a group activity for the first time.
 
There is a contact form on the webpage of nearly every group. To join a group please fill in the contact form – this will be directed to the convener of the group. You will receive a reply in due course and your name will be added to the group’s email list.
