Stanford-Le-Hope & District

Trips - Day and Theatre

Information about the Day Trips and Theatre Trips that we have organised over the past year with reports and pictures can be found in the right side bar.

All Day and Theatre trips are sold at the monthly meeting on a first come, first serve basis.
The only exception to this is when the trips have been organised by one of the groups, in which case the group members are offered the places on their trip first.

We would very much appreciate any help that U3A members may be able to offer including the selling of tickets at the General meeting days and seeing people on and off coaches on the day of travel.
If you feel that you may be able to help please put your name forward to the Day Trip and Theatre Coordinators Christine Gomm or Jean Jardine or telephone Christine on 07905 117622

When booking we will require you membership number and if we are travelling by coach where you'd like to be pick you up (either Lampits Hill, Springhouse, Rookery Corner or The Oaks).
If it is a theatre trip it also be useful to know who you would like to sit beside at the theatre.

The Day and Theatre Trip coordinators keep a diarised record of organised events throughout the Stanford-le-Hope and District U3A. This is so that we can check to avoid any clash of dates for major trips. In view of this please can you verify your proposed dates with them before organising a day trip or check the google calendar linked to this website.
For those that do wish to organise trips, we have a lot of planning information available, a link to the information can be found in the right side bar. FOR DAY TRIP ORGANISERS.
