Meeting Venue

Jávea Players Studio.

Meeting Day and Time Monthly on a Tuesday. See schedule below.
From 10:30 onwards for a 11:30 start.

The group's aim is to share members’ experiences of world-wide travel. We normally meet on a monthly basis (apart from July/August), with a member of the group giving an hour-long presentation, followed by discussion and questions. The exchange of information photos – maps – guide books – leaflets – cost of trips/excursionsetc., enables members to broaden their knowledge and gain an insight into the countries discussed.

The Jávea Players Studio, a few minutes walk from Mercadona in Jávea old town (see a map showing the location of the venue). Please arrive from 10:45 for an 11:30 start. The cost of hiring the venue is covered in part by a subsidy from the Jávea U3A and there is an entry fee of €1 pp to make up the balance of the hire cost (tea/coffee and biscuits will be available at each meeting in the JPS without charge).

The following months we hold a social “get-together” with some extras!

January:      New Year's get-together (cava & nibbles).

June:            Summer social (wine & nibbles).

December:   Christmas get-together (sherry & mince pies).

A “reminder” will be sent by email to all TT members a week before the meeting, following which members should reply by email to BOOK A PLACE so that we know how many seats to make available etc. If any new members would like to join our group, please email the organisers, as above.


Future Schedule

Arrival at 10:45 for an 11:30 start. Charge of €1 pp towards the cost of room hire.
