We visit theatres within reasonable distance, and in convivial company. In recent times we have visited The Everyman in Cheltenham, The Theatre Royal in Bath, The Watermill near Newbury, The Playhouse in Oxford as well as experiencing Shakespearian productions both in the Open Air and at Stratford. Our tastes are wide ranging include opera and ballet, comedy, thrillers and musicals. We are mentioned in the newsletter but full details can be found here on the web site or you could be on our emailing list and then you receive the information first.

There are now 70 plus  members of the theatregoers, we travel either by coach or sometimes the community bus (when numbers are low). Sometimes we have lunch before the performance. Mostly matinees, but occasionally evening performances. An excellent time well spent.

The latest booking

Join our NEW trip for a daring tale of live music, laughter and bravery for this heroic Christmas adventure!

ROBIN HOOD  at the WATERMILL  8th December, Matinee

Yes this is the old tale of Robin Hood returning to his home and finding the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham starving the local people. He vows to be brave and stand up for the local people! This hilarious new adaptation written by children’s author Laura Dockrill, promises to be a visit back to our younger years. If anyone came to see The Borrowers last year I am hoping it will be fun like that without being a  Panto! It is a matinee and is on Saturday 8th December. We will be travelling by community bus and as usual need to know whether you require lunch (separate cost) before the show. The cost for the show and transport is £35 and the deadline for booking this is 29th August.

As usual send your cheque for complete payment to Jane using the form marking the back of the cheque with performance details. Look forward to you joining us!
