Thornbury U3A

Thornbury University of the Third Age was founded in 1997 and is now one of the largest organisations in the town with over 1500 members.
The title ‘University’ can be misleading as members do not require any qualifications to join and there are no examinations to sit or awards made. It provides a wide range of educational, social and leisure activities and is an excellent way of meeting people and making friends. There is no age limit on membership but you need to have ceased full-time employment as most groups meet during the day, either in members’ homes or halls in the local area.
However, in order to keep our size within reasonable limits, members do need to live either in Thornbury or within quite a large area around it as defined by a set of postcodes.
Click below for further information and a full list of all the groups on offer.

Workers Educational Association

The WEA, founded in 1903, is the UK’s largest voluntary provider of adult education, and is committed to provide access to education and learning for adults from all backgrounds, particularly those who have previously missed out on education.
The Thornbury branch is run by a group of local residents with the help of the regional organiser. Courses may be free for those on means-tested benefits or low income.

10.30am: Lynne Gibson Art History Course
The Chantry, Thornbury

How We Lived: In the late Middle Ages and 16th century Flanders

10.30-4.30 day school £28 to include coffee/tea and biscuits (or £50 for two day schools)

Artists across the centuries have offered us insights into the lives of ordinary people: jolly peasants at work and play, middle class families in domestic settings and the nobility enjoying leisure pursuits.

Once occupying a minor category in the Academic hierarchy, and often considered sentimental by Modernist critics, Genre scenes have, deservedly, been re-evaluated by recent art historians.

This richly illustrated course will run over 4 sessions. The first will examine depictions of seasonal activities in Medieval pray books and frescoes. We will also explore life in 16th century... Read more >>
