Make sure you don't miss our interesting lectures on the second Wednesday of each month  -  2.00 pm at the Eden Centre, 21 Montagu Street, Kettering, NN16 8XG.  
The talks start at 2:15 and the meeting lasts until 3:45 approx.  Before the speaker you can see displays of some of the activities and there are 'sign ups' for trips and group activities. Refreshments are available for a small charge (which goes to the Centre).  There is also a raffle for U3A funds.

Visitors are welcome at £2 per meeting for a maximum of 2 meetings.  Our membership fee is quite small - why not become a member and come to all the talks and be able to take part in our Activity Groups?

Please note that the doors are open at 1pm for group leaders and committee members BUT normal members should not arrive before 1:30pm.  This allows Committee members and others to set out the membership sign-in desk, stalls, raffle, displays etc before the majority of people arrive.

If you come by car, the School Lane car park is accessible via the alley way just across the road from the Eden Centre while the multi-story car park is slightly cheaper and just around the corner.  The back door is available for disabled access - please ring our bell.
