Since January 2010, theatre visits have been arranged by a small group of members who research, book and organise three trips a year. We cover both the London Theatre and many suburban ones.
We book tickets provisionally just before a U3A meeting and need to make a firm booking, usually about two weeks after that. Getting expressions of interest means we know if a trip will be successful. If all goes well, we then simultaneously issue a booking form at the next meeting and by email. If you wish to go on the email list then send your email address to Jill Rhodes.
The trips are great fun and everyone in the U3A can join in but there are a limited number of tickets available. They are issued on a “first come, first served” basis. Your place is booked once Jill receives your booking form, cheque and SAE.
We have a committee of 5 that researches and organises our visits:
