Leek U3A

The U3A is generally for people not in full time employment and is primarily for educational, creative, leisure and sporting/keep fit purposes. It is a registered charity and is a not for profit organisation run be unpaid volunteers.

Established in 1995 Leek U3A now has over 1,000 members with over 80 different classes or groups ranging from Badminton to Bridge, Creative Writing to Crochet, Family History to Folk Dancing plus many more besides.

Please see our website www.u3asites.org.uk/leek for further details.


All our activities have a social dimension which can be particularly relevant to single person households – the U3A motto is Learn, Laugh and Live!

We mainly operate from Norton House and the Watson Centre in South Bank Street plus various other venues in Leek including Brough Park Leisure Centre.

Annual membership is £15 and the per session charges are normally £1.

Non Members can attend a “taster” session for free but please check availability of spaces with the leader as some groups can be full up.

To join Leek U3A please visit our “Open House” in Norton House on Thursdays 14.00 to 15.30 term time only  - this process is also now available on line.
