About Membership and How to Join

Who Can Join?

Like all u3as, our membership is open to anyone who is no longer working full time and wants to have fun. It gives you the opportunity to pursue existing interests, find new ones and of course, the chance to socialise and make new friends.

Good Value

All this for an annual fee of only £15.00 for individuals or £25 for joint membership (two people at the same address). Associate membership is available to those who are members of another u3a at £7 for individuals or £12 for joint membership. Our membership year runs from 1 September to 31 August. You can join at any time, we offer a half yearly fee of £7.50 or £12.50 for members joining between 1 March and 31 July. Members applying in August will be treated as joining 1 September of that year.

The u3a values its members as individuals and encourages all members to recognise their unique and different perspectives, abilities and contributions, and it sees diversity and inclusion as routes to growth and enrichment.

Tonbridge u3a grants a carer free access to any activity when they are acting as a carer for a member. Professional carers must provide their own insurance. Family/friends carers are covered by U3A insurance.
