Theatre Visits

Our visits to regional theatres and concert halls is now a well established part of our annual programme.  The events for 2018-2019 showed how broad an offering we can now provide to members.  We are sure that the events for the coming year will be as diverse and entertaining.

So far planned for 2019-2020 – keep checking to be sure you don’t miss out.

Date Event
22nd September An evening not to be missed - Birmingham Town Hall – a performance by London African Gospel Choir who will be performing their unforgettable arrangements of Paul Simon hits such as the Boy in the Bubble and You can call me Al.  Such is their quality they have been praised by Paul Simon himself.
12th November An evening of Flamboyant Cuban Dance at The Birmingham Hippodrome performed by Carlos Acosta’s critically acclaimed Cuban company.  Acosta himself makes a guest appearance in the iconic Rooster choreographed by Christopher Bruce to music by the Rolling Stones.
