Showroom lectures

Do you enjoy the monthly Friday lectures at the Showroom?

For over 10 years now Sheffield U3A has been fortunate to have the free monthly lecture, at the Showroom arranged by a small team of dedicated members.
Some of the original team are still involved and even in times of ‘Lockdown’ the work has gone on. Lectures are being planned for 2021 and we hope at some point to be able to return to the Showroom.
However, the time has now come for a new team to be formed as some of our team will be standing down in 2021. We need some new members who are willing and able to take on the job of putting it all together and carrying on this great asset.
It would be lovely for anyone who would like to be involved to be in contact with us fairly soon so we can support and do a gentle transfer of information and skills.

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.
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) 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.
