Events - Trips
Shrewsbury U3A organises regular trips and excursions. Some outings are arranged by individual groups for their own members but we have created some special groups that organise trips for all our U3A members (and with permission, guests are permitted to come along too). This page will keep you informed about the excursions arranged by our Trips and Theatre Trips groups and other general outings.
For full details of the trips or to book your places, please contact the appropriate group coordinator:
Forthcoming Trips & Excursions
Have Pass Will Travel - Bishops Castle
The Have Pass Will Travel group will return to visit Bishops Castle on Friday 11th October 2019.
As a Shrewsbury U3A member, you don't have to formally join the Have Pass Will Travel group, just grab your 'twirly' bus pass and join them on their next outing that takes your fancy. They operate a relaxed policy in that you don’t need to reserve a place on any of their trips, nor send any apologies if you can’t make it, just turn up for the bus if you are in the mood to be social.
Departing: Minsterley Motors 553, Shrewsbury Bus Station 1005hrs, Stand N
Returning: The 553 returns from Bishops Castle at regular intervals
Cost: Free with your concessionary bus pass
