Theatre Visits

 

All Horsley U3A members are eligible to take part in our Theatre Visits.  We e-mail details of future trips to all Horsley U3A members who are on line, and put notices  on the U3A notice boards at the Village Hall and in the Station Parade shop window, and on this website. 

We try to vary the types of play as much as possible so that we can cater to all tastes.

Our trips are always very popular and usually book up quite quickly.  Keep an eye open for e-mails and notices outside Budgens and in the village hall.
