Tamworth Regional U3A is part of the world wide University of the Third Age movement. Our aim is to provide a friendly relaxed environment for seniors from Tamworth and Regional area to share their knowledge and interests.

No qualifications are needed to become a member of U3A except that you should be more than 50 years and retired or semi-retired. Courses are quite informal with no examinations.

A love of knowledge and an enquiring mind are the only entrance qualifications needed.”
