Monthly General Meeting Talks

Monday 8th April

“It’s bound to be alright on the night”

An illustrated talk by Angela Collins MBE

A talk about the history of Plymouth theatre group and her experiences whilst being a part of that group, including her time as a director.  Angela has been involved in musical theatre since the 1950s so she is uniquely placed to talk about her work and the work of volunteers in the Plymouth area.

Angela has always been involved with theatre, as an Actor, Director and Choreographer as well as Chairman for The Plymouth Theatre Company. She Directed and Choreographed Music of the Night  at The Royal Citadel. She has recently retired to spend more time with her grandchildren.

Monday 13th May

Gaining a Day – and Giving It Back Again

An illustrated talk by Brian Mathieson

Twice in the past five years, Brian has undertaken round-the-world trips, essentially to visit family in Australia but taking in many other places along the way.

Brian will regale us with a tale of the pleasures of foreign travel: food, NFL, music, culture, travelling, and fascinating places – galleries, gardens, places of worship, museums, and palaces.

This talk will be of particular interest to those who are members of Plymouth u3a groups such as Looking at Art, Garden Visits, Antiques, History (military & general), Natural History and World Religions.



Talks on Zoom

For talks on Zoom meetings

About two weeks before each talk all members will receive an emailed invite from our Meetings Co-ordinator, asking if they wish to attend the talk. There is a limited of 95 attendees, and these will be allocated to the first 95 responses to that email. A few days before the actual date of the talk, a link to join the meeting will be emailed to those confirmed acceptances. On the day of the talk, all attendees will be automatically ‘muted’ to avoid any interruptions from background noises.
All the talks on Zoom start at 11am, though you can sign in to Zoom from 10:30am.

No talks on Zoom currently scheduled.
