The University of the Third Age

(Welwyn Hatfield)


We are pleased to say that many members are back attending the Wednesday mornings that are fully running with an interesting range of speakers. Lots of your friends are now enjoying the opportunity of having a chat with their free coffee along with some well-presented topics, such as Life in the WRAF, Cyber Security, Life as a Musician in the Army, etc.
As you would expect we are maintaining social distancing in well ventilated rooms both at Ludwick and Breaks Manor.
There is a full program of speakers for the rest of the year and into next year - go to the Meetings page to see the details.
If you haven’t come to a talk yet please think about it - it's free!


Stop Press!


Change of Speaker
The planned spaker for Wednesday 1st December cannot come, so our "Speakers" group has found a replacement. The speaker will now be Bobbie Darbyshire, who will give a talk entitled "Where do Novelists Get Their Ideas From?"
Bobbie won the 2008 fiction prize at the National Academy of Writing and the New Delta Review Creative Nonfiction Prize 2010. Her latest novel is ‘The Posthumous Adventures of Harry Whittaker’. Earlier ones are ‘OZ’, ‘Love, Revenge & Buttered Scones’, and ‘Truth Games’.


Would you like to be involved in a scientific project to transcribe the hand-written notebooks of Sir Humphrey Davy (1778 -1829)? If so, click here (PDF) for more information.
