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.

On the final Travellers Tales before the Summer Break, Tom Stevenson presented


A Wedding in China, and Other Highlights

In a fascinating talk, Tom took us on a journey around a large part of China, made possible by the super fast "Bullet Train". This wonderful trip culminated in the Wedding Blessing of Wilma and Tom's son and daughter in law.



The Jávea Players Studio is only 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 following months we hold a social “get-together” with some extras!

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

June:            Summer social (sangria & nibbles).

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

The cost of hiring the venue is NOT subsidised by the Jávea U3A any more. Therefore the entry fee is now €1.50 pp to cover the hire cost plus the extras (e.g. tea/coffee and biscuits plus the social get-togethers above).

We would very much appreciate it if you could pay with only €1 and 50 cent coins, rather than those little weeny brown things! 

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 €1.50 pp towards the cost of room hire.
New members always welcome!
