Monthly/General Meeting

General Meetings are suspended until further notice

General Meetings are held on the second Thursday morning each month normally from February to November unless the Municipality needs the venue at the Bellville Civic Centre Voortrekker Road (shown on the  map below). Please use the side entrance closest to Kuils River, (shown by the red arrow in the picture below the map).  We charge an entrance fee of R10 for members wearing their badge and R20 without a badge, except for the year end function where it is R20 for members with a badge and R40 for non-members.  To save the extra fees don't forget your badge.

General format and times:
  • Refreshments are served between 09:15 AM and 10:10 AM
  • A video is shown before the main meeting from 10:00 AM to 10:28 AM
  • Tygerberg U3A general business starts at 10:30 AM
  • Followed by a talk, or a presentation by an invited speaker
Membership is open to anyone, but because U3A is structured for the benefit of retired and semi-retired persons, most interest groups and meetings take place during the day.  Membership fee is R50 per person, per year. You can obtain a membership form at any General Meeting, or from the Home Page of this website.

U3A - Bellville Civic Centre

Side Entrance Bellville Civic Centre


When people arrive, they pay the entrance fee as they enter the large tea room. There they are entitled to free cups of tea or coffee and cookies (served between 09:15 AM and 10:10 AM). They have an opportunity to socialize and meet with friends, old and new. U3A business such as paying of fees, joining interest groups, booking for outings etc. takes place during this time.

A video is shown before the main meeting from 10:00 AM to 10:28 AM in the adjoining auditorium.  Please refrain from making a noise in the auditorium.  Tygerberg U3A general business starts at 10:30 AM and is followed by a talk, or a presentation is given by an invited speaker. We have been very privileged to have heard some truly outstanding speakers and we try to maintain as high a standard as possible. Members and visitors are requested to be seated in the auditorium before the end of the video.
