Llanelli U3A

The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.
The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
We are a registered charity providing a range of social, educational and recreational facilities for those who do not work full time.
There is no age limit and you do not have to be 50+ to join! No exams to sit and no homework, just enjoyable activities and a lot of laughter.
Llanelli U3A was established in 1992 and currently has 79 members. The membership fee is £25 per year and no charge is made for attending any group activity - other than entrance fees if visiting an attraction.
Our catchment area covers the town of Llanelli and outlying villages as far north as Ammanford. We are keen to attract new members, in particular younger members willing and able to bring new ideas and activities to broaden the range currently available to members and who wish to develop and share interests and skills, make new friends and have some fun at the same time. If you are not a member, we hope that you will join us. You will find us to be a friendly and welcoming group.
There are 13 activity groups each of which meet on the same day every month.
