Showroom lectures

These lectures are free to all members. There may occasionally be a retiring collection for the speaker’s charity. There is normally no booking system but please note the special arrangement for the January 2020 Lecture.
 
Lectures are held in Cinema 4 at the Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, starting at 11.00 am, and finishing by 12.30 pm. The Showroom café serves refreshments from 10.00 am and now also sells pre- prepared lunches. Greeters wearing U3A lanyards are at the door to welcome new members.
 
A voucher, obtainable from the box office, enables half-price parking at Q-park (the Cheesegrater) on Charles Street off Arundel Gate.
 
Sheffield U3A’s audio system for the hard of hearing is usually available. It connects the audit personal receivers (using either the hearing aid ‘T’ position or an earpiece). For further information please contact Chris Carter by email at U3AChrisCarter(at)gmail.com. Please come to the lecture at least twenty minutes early in order to be briefed on its use.
 
The team will endeavour to post last-minute changes on the Urgent News page.
