The Surrey U3A Network is planning to restart the programme of Study Days from September 2021.
Study days are open to all U3A members and guests are very welcome. They are held in the Menuhin Hall, Stoke d'Abernon; starting at 9.30am with registration and running from 10am to 4pm.
Following the experience many have had during the pandemic of attending events virtually, we have decided to offer virtual attendance so that members can view the study days from home. The fee, including coffee/tea and biscuits, is £10 for members and £12 for guests and for virtual attendance is £5. Attendees should bring a packed lunch. Prior booking is necessary.
Further details and booking forms for the first three events are now available by clicking here .
Friday 15 October at Menuhin Hall, Stoke D'Abernan
The most famous pharaoh of them all: Tutankhamun, The boy king
Clive Barnham Carter
Tutankhamen was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who was the last of his royal family to rule during the end of the 18th dynasty; he ruled c. 1334 – 1325 BC in the conventional chronology during the New Kingdom of Egyptian history. His father was the heretical king Akhenaten and his mother was his father's sister, identified through DNA testing. The 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb, funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage. With over 5000 artefacts, it sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, remains a popular symbol.
Attendance in person costs £10 and through Zoom £5.
