East Antrim U3A Summer School

East Antrim U3A have organised a summer school and have sent the following details….

Our Summer School workshops are being run in Carrickfergus by East Antrim U3A on the east Antrim coast (not a regional event). We’d be delighted to welcome some of our fellow NI U3A Colleagues if anyone wishes to attend any of our planned events in July & August. We have negotiated prices with local hotels for those who’d wish to stay over and explore our lovely coastline.

The website for the summer school is Summer School Timetable
