Introduction

The organisation was formed in 1985 to give over 50’s an opportunity to take up new interests and to meet people. We provide a wide choice of subjects in informal daytime classes. All our classes are friendly and relaxed.

We are a registered charity and are not funded by any other organisation. Our aims are the same as University of the Third Age (U3A) but we are not affiliated to U3A. Our thanks are due, to Kirklees Cultural Services, Libraries, various other venues and the “Reporter” group for their help and support.


A News Letter is issued to every member each October and January, giving updated information. The local press publish our events.


Whilst the Third Age advertises as much as possible, the best advertisement is your recommendation.

Term Dates

    Due to COVID-19 we are unable at the present time to confirm our term dates.

    We review our position on a monthly basis and will provide any update via our website, as and when classes are able to re-commence.

Our Tutors

All our helpers are voluntary, including tutors, on whom we are totally dependent. We offer our grateful thanks to all of them.
Would you like to be a Tutor/Leader? There are no qualifications required. You only need a love of your subject and a wish to help others lead a fuller life.
