Lifelong Learning in Action

Welcome to the web site of u3a Leeds, devoted to lifelong learning, providing opportunities to share skills and interests by learning together.

u3a Leeds is affiliated to a national organisation, the Third Age Trust. Membership is open to anyone within the Leeds area who is no longer in full time paid employment. There is no age limit.

For information on how to join, please see the Membership page.


During this third period of lockdown the only permitted activities for our groups are those that can meet remotely using Zoom. The groups that are operating in this way are listed on the Groups page.

Added 2 April: With outdoor activities now permitted, the walking groups will start meeting again, starting on 28 April (7 Up Group) and 5 May (Walking Group), with precautions including social distancing and limited numbers initially.

Important notice about subscriptions

The subscription rate for u3a Leeds is to be held at £10.00 for yet another year and you will not need to pay it until 1 April 2021. Subsequently, for this year only, members will get 15 months’ membership for the price of 12 which, considering the Covid 19 pandemic has put a stop to so many of our activities, seems only fair.

At our recent AGM it was agreed that, to simplify our financial administration, u3a Leeds’ subscription year would switch from 1 January - 31 December, to 1 April - 31 March, consistent with that of u3a National Office. For those who pay by standing order, kindly inform your Bank to change your mandate to make payment on 1 April 2021.

Renewal forms for 2021-2022 membership are now available. See the Membership page.
