From Jenny Jones of Brighton and Hove U3A
1. Location:
The city of Brighton & Hove is in East Sussex, UK – on the coast about 50 miles south of London. Often referred to as ‘London by the sea’, Brighton & Hove is a vibrant city. Its most famous landmark is Brighton Pavilion, a former royal palace, which looks Indian on the outside and Chinese on the inside!
2. Members: Our U3A was founded in 1985 and we now have around 350 members. We are also part of the Sussex U3A Network, which organises study days for members across the region.
3. Activities: Our groups meet in a variety of locations across the city. They include Local History, Art Appreciation, Music Appreciation, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Body Basics, Computing, Autobiography, English Literature, Book Reading, Play Reading, Greek Tragedy, Family History, Discussion, Walking, Singing, Digital Photography, Scrabble, Stretch & Relax, Sunday Lunch. We also have a large and lively social group that organises an excellent programme of outings and events.
4. What I like best about our U3A: Meeting new people and learning new things.
