The Culture Club
During my teaching career I regularly organised visits to London theatres and similar events for staff, families and their friends. On learning that I was retiring my colleagues first question was, was I going to continue running these events? I am, and I am also going to open up the opportunity to local residents as well as other friends and relatives.
I have run these trips for years and have developed a network of providers for high quality and reliable transport and I have excellent relationships with major ticketing organisations.
These visits are not just to the theatre to see plays, but encompass other events including musicals, opera and ballet, both regionally and in London, and for which I am usually able to obtain very reasonably priced tickets.
The visits take place on various days of the week. Most popular for working people have been Saturdays where, typically, I have organised a whole day’s visit to London. We leave early (about 08.00) by coach, arriving mid-morning in London. Your time is then your own to visit shops, museums, restaurants etc. We meet up again at the theatre for a matinee performance, before boarding our transport and arriving home mid-evening.
Trips have included a trip to the Phoenix Theatre in London to see "Once", the Globe Theatre for "The Comedy of Errors", Imelda Staunton in Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre, Bletchley Park, home of the World War 2 Codebreakers the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich to see the exhibition "Sense & Sensuality: Art Nouveau 1890-1914 and last May, a visit to Cambridge to hear the King's College Choir. We have also been close to home and seen many productions at the Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich including Magical Mozart by Candlelight, Made in Dagenham and Sister Act.
