Established in 2013, Islington U3A already has over 450 members. It is a registered charity run entirely by its members. Its activities take place in various places around the borough; it does not have a fixed base. There are nearly 50 Interests Groups where members enjoy learning in an informal and friendly way about subjects ranging from Art to Yoga with many in between. Some Groups visit theatres, cinemas, gardens, museums and galleries or go for walks, long and short. Monthly meetings held in Holloway offer members an excellent range of speakers on a variety of subjects.
Islington U3A is one of the 986 U3A’s in the UK and its members also have access to events organised by U3A nationally and by the London Region of U3As
