Open Meetings which include a talk, are normally held most months from September to June, but not December. They are usually held on the 4th Friday of the month, but check the programme as it is sometimes necessary to change the date.

All current Harrogate u3a members are welcome to come to our Open Meetings. There will be a members' registration on entry. Open meetings are held at St Marks Church, Leeds Road, HG2 8AY, 11:00 am start with doors open at 10:30am. Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available. A car park with limited space is available with street parking nearby, and the bus stop for routes 36, X52 & Flyer A2 is directly outside the church.

Please see below for the exact dates and times of future scheduled meetings.


We regularly publish items of news about Harrogate u3a’s forthcoming events and activities on Facebook. We hope the page will provide an opportunity for members to follow us and, if they so wish, add their own comments. Any member wishing to publicise an event is invited to contact Jean Tennant via email: fbpublicity@harrogateu3a.org.uk.

Facebook users just need to log into their own account and search from there for 'Harrogateu3a' (https://www.facebook.com/Harrogateu3a).
