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.
