The Theatre Group was founded in March 2011 with a view to arranging trips to theatres within reasonable reach of Bath. Now in its seventh year, the group continues a programme of quarterly visits, covering a wide spectrum from Shakespeare to musicals.

Some of our recent and proposed trips:

March : "Madam Butterfly", Welsh National Opera, at the Bristol Hippodrome
July : "House and Garden" by Alan Aykbourne, at the Water Mill Theatre, Newbury
October : "Cabaret" at the New Theatre, Cardiff

January : "Swan Lake", Russian State Ballet, at the Bristol Hippodrome
February : "Tosca",Welsh National Opera, at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff
April : "Burke and Hare" at the Watermill Theatre, Newbury

Details and booking forms are published in the monthly U3A in Bath newsletters, and all members are welcome on our trips, (further details are also on the "outings" page of this website).

Apart from opera trips which are usually evening productions, our theatre visits are to matinee performances travelling by coach from Bath in the mornings, and returning home straight after the productions. We arrive at our destinations with sufficient time to allow for lunches, for which people normally make their own arrangements.
