Malling District U3A was launched in September 2007 and became a fully affiliated U3A in June 2008 by which time it had over 200 members and 20 interest groups operating successfully. Today we have over 400 members and some 60 Study groups catering for the varied interests of our members.

We have a monthly programme of meetings with guest speakers that give talks on a wide range of subjects. Our monthly meetings take place every 4th Tuesday of the month at Ryarsh Village Hall.

We welcome new members and if you are considering joining or require more information, please click on 'How to Join Mailling U3A' below.

A talk "The Life and Times of Max Miller (1894-1963)":  will given by Alan Haines

This talk looks at the man born Thomas Henry Sargent but known professionally by his stage name Max Miller and billed as The Cheeky Chappie. He was an English comedian who was widely regarded as the greatest stand-up of his generation. He came from humble beginnings and left school at the age of 12, went into the Army in the 1st World War, formed a small Concert Party, and the rest 'is history'.
