u3a Festival 2024 in York

Save the date: 18 to 20 July 2024*

Plans are already underway for u3a Festival ’24 which will take place in July 2024 in the beautiful city of York.

The festival will run over 3 days and will be held at the University of York based around their exhibition centre and sports centre. 
There will be a wide variety of activities – talks, sporting events, musical entertainment and workshops which will make this first u3a national festival something to remember.

Tickets are not yet available to buy but the cost of the attending festival will be as follows:

  • Day 1, Thursday 18 July – £25 including buffet supper
  • Day 2, Friday 19 July – £10 for the full day
  • Day 3, Saturday 20 July – £5 for a half day
  • Full festival to include all 3 days and a buffet supper on Day 1 – £35
Accommodation will be available on campus and a list of local self catering, B&B, campsites and hotels is being collated.

Social Trips

There will be no trip in August, as for many of us it’s a busy month; I am hoping to arrange something mid-September.

I will let everyone who is registered on the social group know where and when as soon as its decided.

The Social Group is open to everyone in the Eastwood u3a.  If you would like to be informed first of the planned trips please let me know and I will add you to the list.

Monthly Meeting – 6th December 2023

We look forward to welcoming members and visitors to this event, which will last from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon in St Mary’s Church, Church Street, Eastwood.  There will be a speaker and refreshments will be served during the break.   It will be a good opportunity to catch up on the latest group news and meet up with other u3a members.

It would be good to invite friends/neighbours to attend so that they can find out what we are all about.
