Events Planned

Singalong Event

We will be holding a number of summer Singalongs in members’ delightful gardens (great for scaring birds and annoying neighbours) on a variety of days and dates in July, August and September. The venues will be in Hildenborough, Bidborough, Five Oak Green and Tonbridge. 

Free to Singalong members and nominal £1 for a limited number of U3A visitors – advance booking only.

More information in July newsletter – especially good if you are footloose, but not going away!

Barn Dance

Friday 23 June 2023 – 7.30pm to 10.30pm In the Medway Hall at the Angel Centre

Tonbridge u3a Barn Dance makes a welcome return! And what better way to spend a summer evening? There will be live music from Rags and Tatters, a band who have played for us before, and a caller to guide you through the steps.

There will be a charge of £8 per person, which covers the hire of the band and the hall.

Bring your own drinks and nibbles. Doors open at 7.00pm.

Tickets are available by post (using the form in the journal) from Katharine Coleman.

Tickets will also be on sale at the May and June monthly meetings and at the May and June coffee mornings. (Payment by cash, or cheque made payable to Tonbridge u3a).

Monthly Meetings

2pm - 3.45pm - Angel Centre, Tonbridge

Although we have to book speakers months or sometimes years in advance we are always very keen to hear members suggestions and recommendations for speakers or subjects for our monthly meetings.  Email our Speakers Secretary, Chris ( ) who will be pleased to hear your views.
