"A self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment. It consists of local U3As all over the UK, which are charities in their own right and are run entirely by volunteers. Local U3As are learning cooperatives which draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members to organise and provide interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership."
I took the above from their UK web site although it is now much wider spread and exists in Spain as well as other countries. I recently joined my local group having attended as a guest in the past. I was delighted to see the new Leisure Time magazine being distributed at last Mondays monthly meeting. Hopefully future editions will contain some of my articles and photos.
If you wanted to check out U3A just google it - this year is their 30th anniversary in the UK
