Thu Oct 31st A TRIP TO ST. MARTIN’S THEATRE, LONDON TO SEE AGATHA CHRISTIE’S ‘THE MOUSETRAP’

Join us for a trip to the St. Martin’s Theatre to enjoy a matinee performance of Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mousetrap’ - reputedly ‘one of the best theatrical experiences one can have’.

First staged in Nottingham in 1952 The Mousetrap has delighted and enthralled audiences ever since with its mysterious magnetism that is hard to resist. Set in the backdrop of Monkswell Manor, the play stages the mysterious murder plot of a newlywed couple who come to enjoy the guesthouse service in the ramshackle old Manor inherited by the wife, which outwardly is a guest house, but in reality is nothing more than a mousetrap set by a monstrous murderer.

There should be time to buy some refreshment in one of the bars in the Theatre before the performance which starts at 3.00 p.m. We will leave for the return journey to Cranleigh at about 5.45 p.m.
Mon Nov 18th TUTANKHAMUN EXHIBITION SAATCHI GALLERY, LONDON

‘Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh’ celebrates the centenary of Howard Carter’s discovery of the boy king’s tomb. The priceless treasures are making a final visit to London before returning to Cairo to be housed in the new Grand Egyptian Museum. More than 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb are included, with 60 of them on their first journey outside Egypt. The exhibition focuses on interpreting the significance and meaning of the king’s burial items. Through nine immersive galleries that incorporate digital content, contextual material, audio and custom soundscapes, you will follow Tutankhamun’s passage into everlasting life, discovering how his funerary objects were used on the perilous journey.

We should arrive in London with plenty of time to buy lunch in one of the many restaurants/pubs along or near to King’s Road. We have tickets for entry at 1-30pm to the exhibition where you may spend as much time as you wish. There is a café in the gallery where you might like a cup of tea before we head for home at 4pm.
Thu Nov 28th WHITE CHRISTMAS (MUSICAL) - DOMINION THEATRE, TOTTENHAM COURT ROAD

Irving Berlin’s ‘White Christmas’ (the musical) opens in November at the Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road and tickets have been reserved for the matinee performance at 2.30pm on 28 November.

We will leave Cranleigh mid-morning arriving in London with plenty of time for you to enjoy some lunch before going into the theatre.

We anticipate leaving London around 5.30pm to return to Cranleigh early evening.
