Welcome to Matlock Area U3A! We offer older people, who are no longer in full-time paid employment, an opportunity to share their knowledge, experience and talents and also to learn from each other in friendly surroundings.

Matlock Area U3A was formed in 2007 and, earlier this year, we welcomed our 500th member. There are more than 40 "interest groups" of varying disciplines ranging from Art Appreciation through Local History to Walking. Do come and join us!
