Welcome to Aintree U3A

Welcome to Aintree U3A. U3A stands for University of the Third Age. We're part of the national organisation of U3A.

U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full-time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

Explore our site and see what we have to offer.

Key Questions

“I think the U3A has been a great innovation here in Aintree. It brings people together in shared interests. New friendships are formed and old ones renewed. Many thanks to all who help in whatever capacity.” J Parry-Jones
