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 most brilliantly effective spine chiller you will ever encounter!  A lawyer who believes a curse has been cast over him and his family engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul., but then find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. This acclaimed ghost story comes alive in this gripping production. We have some seats reserved in the Circle, access by steps only, and the cost is £20 each. Travel is not included as with this one you can make your own way by bus at whatever time you wish shopping or eating beforehand. Full payment to Jane using the form by  January 10th 2020.

Another new trip – Matinee performance of The Wicker Husband at the Watermill on Saturday April 4th

This is a folk inspired musical. The timeless tale of the outsider. In a superficial world where beauty is only skin deep, meet the so called ‘Ugly Girl’. Ostracised by the shallow townsfolk because she doesn’t fit in, she becomes the envy of her neighbours when the mysterious old Basketmaker makes her a strong and loving husband from living wicker. Bitter rivalry threaten to tear the community apart and the townsfolk embark on a cruel and destructive plan. Will her happiness be ruined? –  we will have to see it to find out! A captivating and powerful new musical, this is its world premiere.

The cost is £39 to include transport on the community bus. Lunch is available in the restaurant at extra cost but please let me know (on the form) if you require booking in for this.

The deadline is quite soon – January 10th, please note that this is the same deadline as The Woman in Black. So please send the forms in to Jane at the address on the form.

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! Contacts Sylvia Bowley 01367 241296 sylkenbow@talktalk.net  or Jane Horey 01793 766177 janehorey@hotmail.co.uk 

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.
