U3A (University of the Third Age) is a UK movement of retired and semi-retired people who come together to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment.
The U3A in Kennet is centred on the beautiful, historic market town of Marlborough in north Wiltshire. The name Kennet is from the river that flows peacefully from its several sources in the chalk downs, and adds interest and charm to the villages on its banks including Marlborough itself.
Our U3A was launched in 1992 and from a promising start now boasts some 60 interest groups and has spawned two neighbouring U3As in the process. Whatever your level of participation, be it energetic or sedentary, thought provoking or gentle leisure, developing skills or just chatting, there is something here for you… and if there isn’t, we are always keen to start new groups.
If you are new to the area, we recommend the Coffee Club to get to know us better. This takes place between 10:30am and 12 noon on the last Thursday of each month in Marlborough at the Wesley Hall in Oxford Street SN8 1AP (which is the narrow road on the left on the lower side of the Town Hall).
