Theatre Visit

Jeannette Walker has kindly agreed to try and resurrect the Theatre Visits group.
She was made a booking at the Waterside for “The Comedy about a Bank Robbery” which the Daily Telegraph wrote “This is the funniest show in the West End”
Jeannette has managed to get two blocks of seats in the stalls for the matinee on 14th March at 2.30. The seats in the block closest to the stage are £28 and the those further back £21, both are central with good views.
Payment will be due at the January meeting.

Please support Jeannette in this new venture.

She is looking for others who might be willing to organise a similar one off trip to another show. She will be happy to give advice and put you in touch with the right contact at the Waterside. Please talk to her at the meeting or email her at theatre@avu3a.org.uk

This is the link to the forthcoming shows  so that you can see if there is one that you would like to organise a trip to.

Readers Circle 1

Chalfont St Giles

For their annual Summer outing Readers Group 1 spent a lovely day in Chalfont St Giles. After a fine lunch at The Ivy House we made our way to Milton’s Cottage. The cottage is open from 2pm to 5pm, Wednesday to Saturday John Milton lived there for a year when he escaped the plague in London, and it was here that he finished Paradise Lost.

We were met by a very helpful lady who, despite not expecting us, welcomed us, helped us manipulate a walking frame and provided chairs, whilst sorting out how we might pick up the less able walkers in the group on leaving, as there was a complete road closure just outside the cottage when we arrived.

A local student gave us a free guided tour of the three rooms, with many original features and original copies of Milton’s works. We then made our way into the pretty cottage garden where we enjoyed the afternoon sun.

The photo shows some of us in the garden. We had a very enjoyable outing, and our tickets last for a year so we can go again.
