Stokesley & District

Theatre & Concert

THEATRE & CONCERT GROUP
Stokesley U3A’s Theatre Group was started back in 2004 since when groups of members have attended over one hundred shows, plays, ballets and concerts at theatres/concert halls from Newcastle to Leeds, Richmond to Scarborough.
The AIM of the group is
1. To enable members to attend theatres further afield, where they may no longer wish to drive, by providing transport for a group to the venue.
2. To take advantage of group early bookings and discounts.
3. To introduce members to new plays and events recommended by other members.
4. To enable members to go on their own and still be amongst friends.
5. To keep members informed of some events locally that may be of interest
Any Stokesley U3A member can book for the visits and they may book for a friend/partner who is not a member unless numbers are restricted.
