Changes to Plan

Passions Course - 29th June

Prof Lyn Tribble will offer the talk on the subject of William Shakespeare. Dr Michael Cop sends apologies, family matters need him to be away from town at that time.

Nobel Prizes Course - 3rd July

The lecture on the Economics Nobel prizes originally scheduled for 3rd July has been postponed until July 17th - there is now NO Tuesday morning lecture on 3rd July but the 10th July one is as scheduled.

A notice of any postponement will be on the U3A Home Page by 8am.
