Many Groups have resumed normal activities

There are groups operating through social media such as WhatsApp and online conferencing tools like Zoom and Google Meet.



There are nearly 200 interest groups from which to choose. The meetings are , when we are not locked-down, at convenient times and at venues all around the northern part of Barnet.



Barnet U3A is NOT a university. We have a wide range of groups engaged in what might be called leisure pursuits for example Gardening, Board Games, Pilates and lots of Walking Groups



The social side of Barnet U3A is central to our success. At the moment we are restricted to online interactions however in pre-pandemic times – We had Quizzes, Xmas dinners and social events. Virtually every group had  a social dimension. 

Outings, Trips and Cruises

Barnet u3a has an absolutely brilliant Outings and Trips team. Pre-Pandemic they offered  an incredible range of activities:

  • Trips to wonderful Gardens
  • Short breaks
  • Cruises to Europe
