For the very latest news about us, see our Facebook page.

 

We have a great program coming up in Term 3, 2018, including:

A Smorgasbord of Talks

Talks on many varied subjects, with time for  discussion and questions:

  • What happened in science in 2018?
  • A bird walk through Burton’s Reserve
  • The Vienna Secession
  • The space between words – visual editing: manipulating time, truth and our audience
  • Gypsies, tramps and thieves
  • William Morris
  • Let them RIP, and other novels by Garry Willmott
  • The ethics of food
  • Aviation – dispelling the myths
  • Music as a force for justice

Book Club

Cygnet U3A book club focuses on themes rather than the same book every month.  Topics for 2018 include Miles Franklin Award winners, mental illness, time travel, and something historical. You choose fiction or non-fiction – any work to illustrate the theme, which is why our meetings are interesting, informative and fun.

Family History Interest Group

A small group of genealogy tragics meet to share experiences, discuss techniques and generally learn from each other.

Garden & Gourmet

A series of visits, talks and workshops on all things garden, and gourmet, with plenty of opportunity to look, discuss and ask.

Mens Forum

The Mens forum meets to discuss any topics of interest, relevance or concern.

Play Reading

Drama, Comedy, Mystery, Crime – experience the joys and sorrows of other lives, places and times. You don’t have to have great acting skills – just be able to read, enjoy being entertained and love laughing. Beginners welcome.

Painting with Watercolours

Learn beginning through to advanced watercolour techniques under the watchful eye of our tutor. You’ll enjoy the discussions, learning new ideas and techniques, and helping others.

Writers Group

We look at various aspects of the novel, non-fiction, memoirs, historical novel, scriptwriting, autobiography, and whatever else the group is interested in.
