The Theatre & Travel Group on their recent trip to Verona, Italy which took in the Opera Aida

Update 5th June 2020

Just to let you know I am still awaiting further information on ‘’Hello Dolly’’ in Sept. and have no new news on ‘’Pretty Woman’’ in November. I am sorry I am unable to be more explicit but am sure you fully understand the situation the theatres must be in. As soon as I receive information I will advise you all.

Please take care

Chris Duffy

Update 22nd May 2020

Apart from 2 Theatre outings – Sept and Nov. 2020 (We are hoping to transfer the Sept. Theatre to Feb 2021 which we will advise later ) I am unfortunately having to cancel the remaining of my outings for this current year these are – 19th July, 5th Aug, 29th Oct, and 12th Nov. I had hoped we might be in a position to take advantage of the later outings but have been advised to cancel all.

I will update you on 9th Sept Theatre asap and 4th Nov will be decided by the theatre companies closer to the time.

To you All, take care and keep safe.


Update 18th March 2020

Due to the Government warning with regards to Coronavirus the Theatre & Travel Group would like to advise  members that ALL Theatre trips and Outings are cancelled until further notice. All monies that have been paid for Theatre trips or Outings up to and including June, should be refunded in full but this could take time due to the volume of work the events are having to deal with. We are sure you understand this and will be patient.

With regards to the cancellation of the holiday to Ireland I am at the moment hoping to be able to transfer our deposit to the same week next year and, if possible, hope this meets with your approval. I will keep you informed.

Please also note the Theatre & Travel Meeting on the last Friday of each month is cancelled for the time being.

We ask that you all take care and look forward to seeing you as soon as is possible. We are still available if you wish to contact us
