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.

Thornbury Wine Circle

We meet on the first Friday in each month at 8pm in the Armstrong Hall. We stage three commercial wine tastings a year, including wines possibly more expensive than one would normally buy. For these evenings we charge between £3 and £5 depending on actual costs of wine and light supper.
Our other evenings involve slide shows and talks. These are funded from the annual subscription of £12. The Christmas meeting is at an hotel with dinner and dance, and the summer event is often a Mystery Coach Tour to an out of the way pub.
Unlike when the Wine Circle began in the Seventies, home made wine is not often made these days, but some grape and elderberry wine is used at BBQs, and mulled wine at Christmas.

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 >>
