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.

Get your toes tapping and bring back our musical memories! THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY at Cheltenham

Matinee performance on November 23rd. The story of his meteoric rise to fame and featuring songs such as That’ll be the day; Oh Boy!; Johnny B Goode; and of course Peggy Sue.  The price is £44 per person which covers ticket, transport and tip for the driver.

The deadline for this will be August 8th. Please send form and total money to Jane at the address on the form.


The Mill at Sonning a matinee performance of

TOWARDS ZERO by Agatha Christie directed  by Brian Blessed. This is a lovely theatre where a two course lunch is included. Therefore at first glance the price is steep but it is a good day out. ‘When you read the account of a murder you expect it to start with the murder itself. Not True. It all starts  a long time before, a culmination all converging at a given time. Its Zero Hour. No one seemed to have any reason for killing her, nor did anyone gain by her death……’ It is full of suspense, a brooding atmosphere, and outrageous twists and turns. The price is £68 which includes ticket, 2 course lunch, transport and drivers tip. We have only 16 seats so to ensure a seat move quickly. The deadline though is not till 1st July. 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!

All members are welcome to join us on any trip, also should you wish to go to the venue (Cheltenham or Stratford, as a tourist or shopper and not the theatre) then it would be possible to use the coach as transport only. We do have a mailing list of interested members, and when we book an outing anybody on that list will receive notification, so if you do not receive such emails (or letters) and would like to, then contact me – Sylvia Bowley 01367 241296 – sylkenbow@talktalk.net, to be added. Alternatively if you are on the list, and no longer interested then contact me to be removed.

If you have any ideas yourselves or particular wishes then please tell us and we will see what we can do.

We have an emailing (non email too) list of everyone who has shown an interest, if you do not wish to be on that mailing list any more then please let us know.
