HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND BEST WISHES FOR A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR

 

Next Meeting 

Thursday 3rd January 2019

Richard Durant - No 26 Bus to Paraguay

Guitarist and composer Richard Durrant will be bringing a south American flavour to Kings Hill

The boy from Brighton tells the captivating tale of how a number 26 Brighton bus took him to Paraguay (via the Albert Hall and the Royal College of Music) and plays some of the vivid and colourful music he has discovered there, in the heart of Latin America.

His regular visits to this fascinating and magical part of the world have earned him accolades and awards whilst his concerts and recent trilogy of Paraguayan albums have uncovered the richness of guitar music being written in the region today.

WELCOME TO KINGS HILL AND DISTRICT U3A

Kings Hill & District U3A (University of the Third Age) is a friendly, self motivated organisation for  people who wish to join in social, cultural and educational activities which may be academic,  cultural, social or physical. If you would like to meet new friends and learn something new at  minimal cost, then this is the organisation for you. Meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of  every month at 2.00 PM at Kings Hill Community Centre.

Although U3A stands for University of the Third Age, the word ‘University’ here has its original meaning of a group of people with similar interests meeting together. There are no academic qualifications required to become a Member, the only qualification is that Members are all in the situation where they are no longer in full time gainful employment. Members with similar interests meet together in local halls, Members' homes, or elsewhere, and most activities are conducted on a self help basis. Nationally, the U3A provides well over 300 different activities.

We are one of almost 1000 U3A groups in the UK. Each is autonomous but share the national ' Common Aims and Guiding Principles'. The U3A movement is neither political nor religious. U3A members are normally retired or semi-retired. All who are not in full-time employment are welcome, both male and female. The Kings Hill & District U3A started in late summer of 2012 and has rapidly grown to over 300 members. We provide opportunities for a wide variety of life enriching activities in a friendly and informal manner. While a principal focus is informal 'life-long learning', hobbies, cultural and physical activities also feature strongly. We aim to be more than a social club.

No qualifications are required to join the U3A - no examinations are held and no certificates are awarded; activities depend on volunteers from our members to organise and participate in over 40 activities.
