Bury U3A is a self-help learning and social organisation which brings together those no longer in full-time employment to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment - men and women from Bury, Prestwich, Radcliffe, Ramsbottom, Tottington, Whitefield and the surrounding areas are most welcome.

Bury U3A has around 700 members and almost 100 interest groups e.g. bridge, luncheon groups, choir, poetry, languages, crafts, walking, line dancing, history, philosophy, cards, trips, backgammon (to mention but a few!). Some meet in members' houses, others in hired rooms.

We have a weekly coffee morning every Tuesday morning in the Art House, Bury 10:00 - 12pm all welcome! Come and see what u3a is all about.

We do not learn for qualifications - rather learning new things for learning's sake. We do not pay tutors - all our groups are run by members, each member contributes to the learning process, if applicable, in a friendly, supportive way.

Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (not December and August) at Bury Met. The doors open at 1pm when you can catch up with friends, have a coffee, meet the Trustee Board and settle down to listen to a speaker at 1:30pm. It costs £2. Browse around the "Market Place", sign up for any groups (if you are a member)- the meeting about 3pm. See you there!
