National u3a Day

On Wednesday 2nd June 2021 Crawley u3a will take part in a nationwide celebration to showcase the u3a organisation.

The u3a is an organisation for adults in their “Third Age” who are no longer working full time. Members come together in locally-run interest groups to share knowledge, experience and generally have a good time! Our groups include walking, outings to gardens, places of interest and theatres, music (singing and instruments), books, films, topical discussions, art and crafts, history, quizzing, science and many more with new suggestions for groups always welcome.

More details about the many groups offered by Crawley u3a can be found at

The u3a National Day will showcase the amazing and diverse activities that members enjoy and challenge preconceptions of what being an older adult means.

Crawley u3a’s contribution to National u3a day will involve displays and demonstrations in and around Crawley Bandstand in the memorial gardens between 11am and 2pm. There will be displays from our interest groups including a live ukulele performance. Members will be on hand to discuss our many different groups and activities.

We are obviously mindful of the lockdown roadmap and are planning a back-up virtual event should we no longer be able to meet outdoors. Details will be posted on the website (as above).

We would love to welcome you at some time during our event when we can share our efforts at supporting the older population in the town.
