Welcome New Visitor

If you are retired or semi-retired, live in Matlock or any of the surrounding communities, would like to make new friends and learn new skills or take up new pastimes in a relaxed and enjoyable way, then come and join us.


U3A members learn from one another by sharing their knowledge and experience – it’s self-help; we don’t require previous knowledge or qualifications, no syllabus or exams, but you are meant to enjoy yourself! With over 60 different groups and nearly 700 members, there are always new things to try and new friends to be made. All this for just £10 per year! There is no excuse for being lonely or bored. use this link to find out more about the U3A.


For those who have just moved into the area, MAU3A is a great way to quickly build a circle of friends or learn more about your local neighbourhood. You may find the introduction to the area interesting. If you have recently retired, it is an opportunity to try out those activities that you always wanted to do but never had the time. Click here to see what the groups have to offer or here for more information on the local U3A scene.


If you would like to learn more before you commit, then why not come along to one of our coffee mornings and have a chat. These are held on the first Monday of every month at 10.30 am in Matlock Football Club
