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

Update 16th November 2020

Please note we have now received the refund for the cancelled theatre show ‘Pretty Woman’ and will shortly be issuing the refunds for that and also ‘Hello Dolly’. We hope you are all keeping well and, that like everyone, 2021 will allow us to resume our outings at some point in time.

Take Care and Keep Safe.
