The monthly speaker meeting is our most high-profile activity. Every interest is catered for, be it Our Place in Space, Bronze Age Dartmoor, the Pre-History of Malta, the Future of Local Journalism, Plymouth under the Blitz or The Building of Exeter Cathedral – to name just a handful of past topics.
We welcome recommendations from our members, but are happy also to respond to offers from professional speakers. Our members can derive a lot of social and intellectual satisfaction from participating in the various interest-groups, but the monthly meeting is the forum which best demonstrates our commitment to the u3a principle of life-long learning.
