U3A London Region 2021 Summer School

This year’s Summer School has been cancelled because of the covid-19 pandemic, but the dates for the 2021 Summer School have already been set. It will be held at the St Bride Foundation, just off Fleet Street on 27, 28 & 29 July 2021.

The theme will again be ‘The Twenties’ as it will still be relevant next year. There are already uncanny similarities between the 1920s and 2020s, and the coming decade will no doubt also see huge changes and innovation.

It’s hoped the Summer School team will be able to start planning next year’s programme in the autumn with a view to launching the bookings in February as usual, but obviously that depends on various factors as yet unknown.
