We can adapt what we have to offer depending on the interests of the group.

We can also provide outreach talks to groups at a cost of £60, plus travel expenses (45p per mile).

Just email or give us a call to chat about your visit.

“I would like to thank you, on behalf of Burntwood and District U3A for an extremely enjoyable afternoon. Several of the group have commented how informative it was and that they had no idea of the  multitude of talents possessed by Erasmus Darwin! We were especially lucky to have had our tour partly conducted by one of our very own members – Tony.

Many thanks for allowing me to “dress up” in that beautiful gown. I really felt like the lady of the house!

We all learned so much in a short space of time. An ideal visit for members of the University of the Third Age.

Very Best Wishes, Hazel Whitehouse

Chairperson, Burntwood and District U3A”
