The Theatre and Travel Group has a range of trips to places of interest, and to theatres and concerts, with usually at least one per month. Holidays are also arranged for members. Details are included below, and on their group page. The group meets on the last Friday of the month at 2 pm in the Baptist Church Hall, to discuss and take bookings for future outings. Please note that we continue to meet on the last Friday of each month during June, July and August as well. Click on to Theatre and Travel on the Group page for contact details.

Open Meetings

Every third Monday at the Bowls Club, except August and December. Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available at 2.30 pm before the speaker starts at about 2.45pm.   

Due to Coronavirus we have cancelled all Open Meetings until the end of December.

Social and Other Events

Theatre and Travel

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
