Technical Group


Technical Group visit London Bridge Station rebuilding works Aug 2017



The Technical Group organises outings and talks which should appeal to those U3A members who are interested in how, or why, things work. Group members are encouraged to suggest suitable events to include in the programme and to take turns in organising them.  It is envisaged that one event will take place each month.
We do hope you can join us.

Proposed visit to Triumph Motorcycle Factory

If enough people are interested, I will make a group booking for the next available Wednesday in October which is the earliest month for which bookings are available. Maximum group size is 15
The factory is at Hinckley, Leicestershire (LE10 3BZ) and, depending on your chosen route, the journey should take between 1.5 and 2 hours (66 and 80 miles respectively). I suggest car sharing. I would aim to arrange the start of the visit for about 11:00.
Cost is £15.00 per head which would need to be paid 6 weeks in advance of the visit (no refunds). The factory guided tour takes about 1.5 hours and they suggest that we leave another 2 hours for the “factory visit experience” (aka museum) which is free. There are catering facilities on site.
For now, please let me know if you would like to sign up for this visit – in the next week please.
Best regards
