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.


As it is the last meeting before the “summer holidays” we normally offer a glass of wine and nibbles, in addition to the usual tea/coffee and biscuits.  Many of you may well be aware, however, that the adjacent Restaurante Bar Fuentes is under new ownership and has been completely refurbished and is now the Restaurante Area 1.  We went along to their official opening this week to give it a try, and enjoyed a reasonably priced “Menu del Dia”.  The new owner, Raphael, and his son David,  were very welcoming so we have decided to have a Summer Social get-together at the restaurant to end the season, instead of a drink prior to the talk. 


We have arranged a menu del dia lunch at 13:00 on Tuesday 27th June and if you would like to join us, please let us know by return email with your menu choices (see below) and we will collect your payment on entry at the TT meeting €12.50 pp (to include tip).


We look forward to seeing many of you soon.


Kind regards
Angela & Tony
