Outings and theatre trips
Outings and theatre trips are advertised on this page, at our U3A's monthly social meetings and in our U3A's periodic newsletter. To contact the coordinators by email please use the bluebird email box on this page.
Over the years we have visited a number of venues.
For an article by a member wrote about a trip to The Vyne and Milestones Living Museum click here. Of the trip in August 2017 to Hampshire, Romsey and Sir Harold Hillier Gardens a participant said "We had a brilliant day, Romsey is a very attractive small town with a lovely Abbey. We then carried on to Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in the Test Valley. They are quite extensive and very diverse, plus a lovely cafe which most of us made use of. It was a really lovely day out, and the weather stayed dry. Many thanks to Chris and Carol and their new co-ordinator Carole for organising another enjoyable trip."
