By Barry Hines

Saturday 19th March 2022 at The Octagon Theatre, Bolton

Coach departs the bus station at 11.15 am for The Octagon Theatre, Bolton

Cost £52.00 – which includes Coach Travel, Theatre Ticket plus Soup and Sandwich Lunch 

’Kes’ is a powerful coming of age story, based on the well-known book and film, newly adapted and brought to life on the Octagon stage. I am sure you remember it! Life isn’t easy for troubled teenager Billy, growing up in 1960’s Yorkshire – but then he finds Kes, a kestrel hawk that he cares for and trains. An uplifting story about survival in a tough world.

The Octagon has been closed for a couple of years whilst it underwent a £10 Million pound refurbishment and has only recently reopened. We have seen some excellent productions there and I am delighted that we can return.

Our soup and sandwich lunch (soup, sandwich, and hot drink) will be served in a private room before the performance which starts at 2 pm. Should you have any food allergies, please complete the relevant section on the application form.

Please ensure that you have proof of Covid vaccination with you just in case the theatre should ask to see it.

To reserve a place please use this application form and send with your cheque, made out to Knutsford u3a to: – Margaret Hinde, 1 Warford Hall Drive, Alderley Edge, SK9 7TR, phone 01565 872643

Tickets will also be on sale at the monthly meeting on Thursday 13th January 2022. It would be helpful, though not essential, if you could bring your completed order form.


By Noel Coward

Wednesday, 16th February, 2022,  2 pm at The Lowry Theatre, Salford

Cost, including travel,   £45.00

Coach departs Bus Station, 12.30 pm

This is an old favourite which needs little introduction, with well-known stars :-  Nigel Havers, ever suave and charming, taking the role which Noel Coward played himself, with Patricia Hodge playing his ex-wife.   It should be gloriously entertaining.

(As a quick reminder – it’s the one where two newly married couples find themselves on honeymoon on the French Riviera, with their ex-partners on adjoining balconies.) I have booked a matinee performance, as it is for the middle of February, and I have reserved excellent centre stalls seats.

‘Les  Miserables’

Thursday, 7th April, 2022,  7.30 pm at The Lowry Theatre, Salford

Cost, including travel, £75.00

Coach departs Bus Station, 5.45 pm

This is Cameron Mackintosh’s brilliant new staging of ‘Les Miserables’ which they are bringing to the Lowry on a national tour, after its London season.

“This reborn dream of a production looks and sounds fresher than ever”  –  The Telegraph.

Need I say more?

I have just 40 centre stalls seats (there are now no more available!).   The committee kindly loaned us the money for me to buy them, at a well discounted price, when they first went on sale in March of this year.  They would now cost £75 each, so you are getting ‘free’ coach travel!

I will only allocate these tickets on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, when I receive your cheque and a completed booking form (plus s.a.e. if you want confirmation).

Please note, I will NOT be selling them at the November monthly meeting.
