Welcome to Berwick-upon-Tweed u3a


The u3a (formerly the "university of the 3rd age") was set up 40 years ago for those who, whilst no longer in full time employment, still enjoy:
- learning: for its own sake and for fun, and
- sharing their own skills and knowledge with others.

The UK's u3as are split between 12 geographical areas. Berwick u3a is part of Northumbria Region.

We're celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2024. We have over 400 members participating in about 50 different interest groups ranging from Art Appreciation to Woven Tapestry - our Groups page has full details. Membership costs £13pa. Please see our Membership page for how to join.

The Third Age Trust (TAT) supports over 1000 local u3as across the UK who, between them, have more than 430,000 members.
TAT offers Online Learning Events, free to all u3a members, including podcasts, workshops and courses.
All members may also take part, free of charge, in various projects, initiatives and competitions.
Finally, TAT also runs 'Interest Groups Online' (IGO), a digital branch of the u3a. Membership of IGO costs £12pa
