New Group Starting! 🎭Theatre visits🎭

7 December, 2018

Theatre visits

The new ‘Theatre’ group will start in 2019 and aims to provide trips to the theatre to see a wide range of plays, dramas, comedies and musicals.

We hope to use local theatres as much as possible (e.g. in Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Oxford and Milton Keynes), so your own or public transport can be used, but the occasional trip further afield (e.g. London) may also be organised with coach travel.  

The dates and costs will vary according to the booking arrangements.   Here are the trips that are planned so far:

Date Production Venue Cost
13th March at 2.30pm ‘The comedy about a bank robbery’ Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury Tbc
21st March at 2.30pm ‘Abigail’s party’
Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury Tbc

Trips will be advertised in the monthly Newsletter and on the website.  If you are interested and would like to book a place, please contact the group leader, Melanie Evans at theatre@wtu3a.org.uk for further details.
