General Studies (Newport)

We are a friendly group who welcome new members and visitors. Although we meet weekly, members are not expected to attend every week, but come when they can.

We discuss a wide range of topics of interest to our members, including Art, History, Current Affairs, Music, Poetry, Religion, Books and Films. See our Spring 2020 programme below.

Some weeks a member of the group introduces a topic they are interested in or knowledgeable about, followed by discussion. Other weeks we watch and discuss an interesting film. Or we have a ‘bring to share’ style, where people discuss a book everyone has read, or bring poems, music or newspapers to share and discuss. Sometimes we have an external speaker. No matter what the topic, we have lively discussions in which everyone can participate.

The group meets in Newport, but we are fortunate to have members from across North Pembrokeshire and Cardigan. We are affiliated to Cardigan U3A.

We meet in Unit 3 (the Council chamber) of Newport Old School, Lower St. Mary Street every Friday (in term time) from 10.30 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. Sometimes after the meeting some people go to lunch at a local cafe.

You are very welcome to join us – you can come as a visitor for a couple of sessions and see if you enjoy it.

Our latest Programme is available here.
