Theatre and Concert Visits

Contact:  Margaret Hinde, 1 Warford Hall Drive, Great Warford, Alderley Edge, Cheshire, SK9 7TR.   Tel: 01565 872643   email: info@knutsfordu3a.co.uk

The former Performance Arts Group (which we are renaming Theatre and Concert Visits) has decided to broaden its horizons!  We are making our outings available to all members of Knutsford U3A.  Obviously, we will have to reserve a larger block of tickets for events that we think might be popular, and we will also have a coach to take you from Knutsford Bus Station to the door of the venue.

 

BOOKINGS FOR THEATRE AND CONCERT VISITS – Clarification of Procedure

  • All bookings must be accompanied by a bookings form and a cheque made payable to Knutsford U3A. Please write the name of the performance or outing on the back of the cheque.
  • We will contact you only if your booking has not been successful. If you want confirmation that you have the places you want, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Usually your cheque will not be paid in until two weeks before the event.
  • If a performance is fully booked when we receive your cheque you will be informed and placed on the waiting list.
  • Priority will be given to U3A members. If you would like to bring someone who is not a member please put a note on the booking form to this effect and we will inform you if a place becomes available.
  • We hope to take bookings for the current performances at our general meetings but, as our outings are proving very popular we cannot guarantee the availability at the time of the meeting. In other words please book early to be sure of a place!

The next programme appears below and we hope that there will be ‘something for everyone.’   For a booking form, which can be printed off, click here, or use the one at the bottom of this page

 

Please use a separate booking form and separate cheque (made out to Knutsford U3A) for each performance and send to Mrs Margaret Hinde, 1 Warford Hall Drive, Great Warford, Alderley Edge, SK9 7TR. Tel:01565 872643 or email info@knutsfordu3a.co.uk

NB – all 50 tickets for this have now been sold

Saturday, 2nd December, 7.30 pm

Cost, including travel, £30 .00

Bridgewater Hall, Manchester               Coach departs, 6 pm.

 

I don’t think Handel’s ‘Messiah’ needs any introduction from me!    This annual performance is one of the great Halle traditions.    The Halle Orchestra, The Halle Choir and a top line of soloists will do it full justice.    An uplifting evening for sure!

Friday, January 12th, 2018,  7.30 pm                 Cost, including travel,   £41.00

Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester                 Coach departs  6 pm.                  

 

This well loved Broadway musical  is this year’s  Christmas production at the Exchange – which always

provide a super evening!   Set in Haarlem and celebrating the high spirits of black America, it contains

plenty of well known numbers, such as  Luck be a Lady; Guys and Dolls, and Sit down, You’re rocking the

boat.  Come along and party!

Tickets will be on sale at the Members’ Meeting,  October 12th
