Whilst principally built with concert performances in mind, lectures have formed an integral part of The Menuhin Hall's programme of events from the outset, with Surrey U3A Network, Claremont Arts Society, Art Fund Surrey Fundraising Committee and The Arts Society East Surrey Area all holding regular lectures here.
The auditorium's acoustic is particularly well-suited to lectures offering two different screens for accompanying DVD/video footage, slide shows, presentations, etc. We also provide hearing loops to assist the hard of hearing.

Universities of the Third Age (U3A) are educational self-help organisations for the retired or semi-retired. There are twenty four in Surrey with around 20000 members. The U3As draw on the wealth of knowledge and experience of their members to set up study groups and common interest groups and to organise recreational activities. U3A activities take place in their own locality but study days for members across Surrey are held at the Menuhin Hall once a month (except for January, July, August and December). The study days are held on the third Friday of the month and are full day events.
