Plymstock & District U3A AWAY DAYS
On Wednesday 4th December we went to Longleat for the Festival of Light Display, our last Away Days for this year. Although the weather was bitterly cold we had a lovely day beginning with a drive-through safari where we managed to see lots of animals. The house was dressed for a glitzy twenties Christmas party celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Longleat House opening to the public.
The Light Festival depicted a fantastic display of Myths and Legends around the world ,including sound effects within lots of the characters, from Ancient Greece, British folklore and the legendary Kraken, a colossal sea monster.
It really was a spectacular and memorable show.
We have had four very successful Away Day trips this year. If anyone has any ideas for consideration next year, please contact Ruth Hammond on 01752 290515.
