Annual Theme 17-18

The annual theme is open to all Farnham U3A members. The subject area for 2017-18 is Latin America and the Caribbean. The meetings are normally held monthly on Friday mornings. For a few of the meetings and for any trips, you need to buy a ticket in advance but most meetings are free and you can just turn up, space permitting.  Many groups also offer Open Meetings related to the Theme to which all are invited, space permitting, and these are advertised in the regular email newsletter, U3A Update.
