Radlett & District

Theatre visits

Radlett & District arranges many theatre visits which are open to all members. Travel is usually by coach.

The Events Committee would like to make you aware of our booking procedure for theatre outings.

We are informed early of group rates available for new shows and as such we have to reserve a fixed number of tickets. We then offer them for as long a time as we can and book people in. Unfortunately we then have to let our members down if they request tickets at a later date, as we have already booked an appropriate size coach and costed the outing accordingly.

If you want to make a booking, please do so as soon as you see it advertised, to avoid disappointment.

If you are paying for other members at the monthly meeting, please let the organiser have a list of the names and the events/outings you wish to book.

We have many other events and outings which are currently sold out but you can add your name to their waiting lists. Please refer to the Radlett and District U3A website for a full listing and committee member contact details.

Dates for your Diary
Wed Nov 13th RIGOLETTO – MILTON KEYNES THEATRE
Wednesday, 13th November – leave Radlett 4.30pm - £55

2 tickets now available

Join us for Glyndebourne’s first ever production of Verdi’s own favourite opera, reimagining this classic drama for our own age. Rigoletto is a tragedy of Shakespearean scope, a disturbing psychological portrait of a man caught in a corrupt world, an outsider in a system built of power and privilege. The dramatic score, heavy with menace includes many of Verdi’s greatest arias.
