The BNB U3A is open to all who are not in full-time employment. There is no minimum age, although most members not in full time employment are over 50!


The membership year commences 1st April and is renewable each year.

Annual Membership fees are required to help pay towards the costs of providing the organisation events, magazine etc., although additional fees may be required towards the costs of attending at specific venues for group activities. The following gives a guide on the current level of membership fees for 2022/23. These are required to be paid by the end of March 2022 for renewal of current membership:

Singles (Full year)
Couples (Full Year)
If joining as a new member partway through a year (after 1st October) the standard membership fee of £15.00 is reduced to… £8 (£15 for couples).
For members of other U3A’s (e.g. Coventry, Hinckley) £5

If you join for the first time from 1st January 2022 or the following year, the annual fee as above stands but will cover membership through to the next year end, ie. it will cover up to 15 months membership.
