The Culture Club organises one day excursions or evening visits to all types of cultural event or locations. These visits include the theatre to see plays, musicals, ballet and other types of musical event. We also visit art and culture exhibitions, stately homes and heritage attractions. For example we have been to Bletchley Park, home of WW2 code breaking; to London to see Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre; to Cambridge to listen to the King's College Choir, to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at Norwich to see exhibitions such as Royal Faberge and to Wimpole Hall to see the historic estate. On these days out there is often time to do some shopping or have a leisurely lunch. Some visits are at the weekend, but we also offer mid-week trips.
The Culture Club has built excellent relationships with major ticketing organisations and we are able to buy reasonably priced tickets. Similar relationships have been developed with a network of coach companies who provide high quality, comfortable transport with skilled and friendly drivers.Membership is informal. There are no membership fees. You simply need to be on the email list.
We had a full programme last autumn including a trip to the Globe Theatre in London to see “Twelfth Night” and the New Wolsey Theatre to see Othello and Trial by Laughter.
In November we travelled to Cambridge for the day where we had a few free hours to enjoy the city’s delights before going to the Arts Theatre to see another new comedy “The Nightingales” by William Gaminara. One of the UK’s best-loved stars Ruth Jones, made a rare stage appearance playing the character Maggie who enters the lives of a local a cappella group who meet to rehearse every week and once she does, everything changes….
December saw a trip to the Natural History Museum where, in a custom-built theatre inside the museum, we watched another new play “The Wider Earth”, about the adventure that the young Charles Darwin goes on to the far side of the world when he discovers his theory.
The new year started with a visit to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts to see the exhibition "Elisabeth Frink: Humans and other animals" in January.
