Welcome to the Epsom and Ewell u3a

About us

From Retired to Inspired

The u3a is a unique organisation, and it’s global

It’s open to all people who are no longer in full time employment.

Our youngest member is mid fifties and our most senior is mid-90’s !

Membership of our u3a costs just £15 per year.

We have a live monthly speaker on the first Monday of every month (except May) and entry is free to all members. Bring your own cup and you even get free tea/coffee and biscuits (don’t worry if you forget it for 20p you can have a disposable one – but we are trying to help save the planet)

We have interest groups that cover a wider spectrum than you could possibly imagine, and if we don’t currently cover your particular interest we’ll ask our members if anyone else shares your passion and set up a new group.

For members who like to meet up informally for coffee and a chat join Rosie and Sue at their regular monthly coffee club.

Especially of interest to some members is our Social Events calendar. We advertise events as they are arranged with a ‘save the date’ and booking will open on the first day of a month that members will be notified of in order that all members have an equal opportunity to book a place.

Another popular group is our Jazz group which have a live band every month (there is an entry charge for this event)

The Surrey u3a Network organises regular study days at The Menuhin Hall, Stoke D’Abernon. These cost £12 for members and £15 for non members and the lectures cover a diverse range of topics.

The Third Age Trust organises online learning events that are held on zoom and are mostly free for members to attend. Bookings are done via the eventbrite system and details of upcoming events can be found on our Trust Online Learning Events page

Welcome to the Epsom and Ewell u3a. One of the best U3As in the South-eastern region, going from strength to strength. Dynamic and diverse, inclusive and caring. This is one of the best organisations you could belong to anywhere. Unique in its format, there is nothing else like it.

The members are ordinary people with a passion for life and a need to never stop learning.  The running of this wonderful organisation is in the hands of volunteers, people who give their time, skills, and commitment to see other people happy and help them find another life after working.

These brave souls cannot keep going indefinitely, they need a break, a chance to be ordinary members again like you. But they need to know all their hard won’t be lost, they need to know someone else will step in and carry on, taking our u3a on its next journey into the future and beyond.

You could be that person; you could be the one to allow these volunteers to step back. That special person who sees happiness in others for no more reward than a thank you or a knowing smile.

We need a new chair, you could do it. The hardest part is deciding, but it will be the best decision you make.
