We are always delighted to welcome new members, so if you would like to join, please complete the form below, and then click the Submit Membership Request button at the end.

An Open day is held each year at the Corn Exchange in the Town Hall. This is open to anyone and members of the Committee and Group Leaders will be there to explain more about Lewes u3a and the activities of their Groups. There will also be the opportunity to apply to join. The 2023 one took place on Wednesday 6th September.  

If you are an existing member, even though we have a new website with a new login procedure, your membership is unchanged and you do not need to re-apply. You should instead go to the Login Page and follow the instructions there.

Please allow a few days from submitting the form. Our Membership Secretary will be in touch with you to let you know the next steps, and to request payment. Please include an email address as without this we will be unable to process your application. If you would like to discuss your application with someone please contact us by clicking on Membership Secretary.
