Third Age Matters – U3A

Third Age Matters coverThird Age Matters is published five times each year by the Third Age Trust, the umbrella body for the UK’s 1,000-plus local U3As.

It has a circulation of more than 247,000, with many of the households that receive it having more run one member.

Membership of the U3A movement has been increasing year on year and the circulation of the magazine therefore rises with each issue.

‘Older’ people today are ‘younger’ than at any time in history, and U3A members particularly so.

They are greedy for information which enhances their lives and are eager for continued learning.

Their interests include foreign languages, music, theatre and play reading, art, creative writing, local history, computing, physical sciences, architecture, geology, religion, archaeology, biological sciences, literature, current affairs, bird watching, walking and gardening.

U3As organise activities including theatre and concert visits, crafts, outings to places of historical or general interest as well as study tours, both in the UK and abroad.
