Showroom lectures

Lectures are held in Cinema 4 at the Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, on the third Friday of the month and start at 11 am, finishing at around 12.30 pm.  A voucher, obtainable from the box office, enables half- price parking at Q-park on Arundel Gate.  There is a greeter wearing a U3A lanyard badge to welcome new members. All members are able to attend these lectures free of charge.   Occasionally there is a retiring collection for the speaker’s nominated charity.
We are trialling  an audio system for members with significant hearing problems. For more information please text Chris Carter on 07855 908007 or
The cafe opens at 10 am and refreshments are available before and after the lecture. The team will endeavour to post last-minute changes on the website.  There is no booking system – it is ‘first come, first served’, as seating is limited.   Queries to Shelagh Woolliscroft on 255 8948.
