Dates for your Diary
Birmingham Hippodrome, 7.30 pm

All tickets now sold.
Willy Russell’s award winning BLOOD BROTHERS is coming to the Hippodrome in October. Affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, it inevitably brings the audience to its feet with songs such as Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged Tell Me It’s Not True.

However, I have a problem. I wasn’t able to get a block booking so I have seats together in two different locations, with two different prices. So - front circle rows F and G, all at £44 and stalls rows L,M and N (all at the side), a mixture of £44 and £36. This is because I didn’t want seats further back than that. The coach fare is £11. I will allocate seats, as far as I can, according to people's preferences.

Pickup will be 4.15pm from Warwick Tesco car park. I will, of course, check that nearer the date.

The discovery of the boy king’s tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter in an expedition financed by Lord Carnarvon of Highclere Castle stirred up 'Egyptomania' in England. The 3,300 year old Egyptian designs influenced the art and architecture of the Roaring Twenties.

Our December excursion this year will be to Lincoln, home to one of the largest and most popular Christmas Markets in the country. There is the castle with its Mediaeval Wall Walk and Victorian prison and, I think, one of the four copies of the Magna Carta. And there is the cathedral with stunning nave, tower and roof tours and unique libraries. There is the cathedral quarter and cultural quarter. Need I go on?
The coach will leave Warwick Tesco car park at 9.15 am and should take no more than two hours, hopefully less. Our planned leaving time from Lincoln is 4.30 pm.
Cost is £15.00 pp.
