Outings
Fri Jan 26th GRAND TOUR OF THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL AND LUNCH

On arrival at The Royal Albert Hall by coach we will start by enjoying coffee and a pastry/cake before undertaking the Grand Tour. This will take in many aspects of the RAH including the auditorium, the gallery with its amazing views, visiting the Queen’s private box along with her private suites. The tour also tells the history of the building along with the opportunity to see the stunning architecture found within the hall. Following the tour we will enjoy lunch, at an additional cost.

Wheelchairs are available at the RAH for visitors who need them. Please note that if you book a wheelchair, you will need a companion to push you. Lifts are available to access most levels of the RAH. Comfortable shoes are recommended.
Thu Feb 15th ‘THE WINSLOW BOY’ at the CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE

Terence Rattigan is one of Britain’s greatest playwrights and according to the Daily Telegraph this is one of his best. Olivier-nominated Rachel Kavanaugh returns to Chichester to direct a star cast in this production.

‘Based on a real-life event, The Winslow Boy is a courageous and often delicately humorous window into the class and political hypocrisy of the 1910 Edwardian time. This gripping masterpiece is engrossing for Rattigan lovers or newcomers alike: a highly-charged moral drama that will have you gripped by the heart-tugging decisions facing each member of the Winslow family. Where will their sacrifices leave them and what is really at stake?’

We have managed to reserve front stall tickets for this 2.30pm matinee performance. We will arrive in time to visit the Café where light lunches, sandwiches, cakes and drinks can be purchased.
Tue Mar 20th THE IDEAL HOME SHOW - OLYMPIA, LONDON

The Ideal Home Show (originally called Exhibition) was founded in 1908 by the Daily Mail and has continued to develop and expand ever since. In 2008 the show changed hands for the first time in its history and is now owned by an award winning media company called Media 10. The show brings you the latest innovations, the brightest ideas and of course fantastic shopping at often bargain show prices. Exhibits and demonstrations should provide something for everyone to enjoy.

It is a big show and involves quite a lot of walking to see it all, but there are lots of places to take time out for either a full meal or just a coffee and snack. You could also bring along your own packed lunch if you prefer. The restaurants, cafes and bars are clearly marked on the Show Maps around the venue and in the official show guide which is readily available.
