Peter & Pauline periodically arrange theatre visits open to all members of Ashbourne U3A (subject obviously to availability of tickets), usually to include transport. So far, we have seen Abigail's Party at Derby, Blood Brothers at Nottingham, The Lady Vanishes at Stoke & Calendar Girls at Nottingham.
The Club will make a provisional booking of a quantity of tickets with the theatre. Tickets will only be definitely booked with the theatre once the number of members wanting to go on the trip is known & such members have paid the Club the total price of the ticket & of the transport. Tickets will be allocated by the Club in the sequence in which members order them by email, post or on any board displayed at a monthly meeting, & on condition that payment reaches the Club by the prescribed deadline. Cheques should be in favour of "Ashbourne & District U3A".
Inevitably therefore trips & deadlines for paying for tickets will be announced quite some time in advance of the trip. While updates will be announced at future monthly meetings & in future newsletters, information about trips will invariably be more frequently updated on this website. Therefore this website will be the best source for up to date detailed information.
Tickets will be non-returnable unless a waiting list of members has arisen.
Tickets will be for members' use only. Therefore, if a member wishes to buy a ticket for a non-member's use, that non-member is requested to join Ashbourne U3A by paying the appropriate annual subscription, obviously becoming entitled to all the other advantages of such membership.
The committee realise that not all members may wish to travel on the coach organised by the Club. Nevertheless, the majority of members do want such transport to be arranged. Therefore the price for the trip will represent the total cost (after any available discount) of both the theatre ticket & the transport. Any member preferring to travel independently will be required to pay that total price. If any member indicates when ordering a ticket such member's preference to travel independently, that member will receive a refund of the cost of the transport after the trip has taken place if the quantity of theatre tickets bought by members exceeded the capacity of the coach, in consequence of which that member did in fact travel independently.
While it is appreciated that not all members have an email account or access to this website, Peter & Pauline can only fairly accept orders for tickets if they are made in writing either by email, post or on any board displayed at a monthly meeting. With a Club membership of nearly 400, phone calls or casual remarks to Peter or Pauline made when encountering them somewhere will be too disruptive to their own lives & will only lead to errors & oversights. A member without an email account or access to this website should ask a friend (or younger member of the family!) to keep the member informed of announcements on this website page & to email Peter & Pauline as necessary on behalf of that member.
