What we do: the club books seats and arranges coach transport for members and guests to attend plays and concerts, starting from Kingsbridge in Devon. The planned events are listed in programmes issued about four times a year. The venues are mainly in Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter but we occasionally travel much further afield. See more at About Us.

POSTED (27 July 2015)

Recalling the club’s donation of £500 to the Theatre Royal Regeneration Project in 2013, on completion of our theatre tour on 1st July we looked for our star in the paving outside. We found it, amongst many, in the passage to the left of the building. Here is the picture (RS):

NEWSLETTER 4  (22 October 2016)
Dear SHTCC Member/s,

Please find on the Programme page our third programme of this year. As always I try to put together a varied programme operating within the constraints of what the local theatres and concert halls put on. Some of the shows are new; going to or coming off London's West End. For example look out for 'The Commitments' which received universal critical acclaim following its London World Premiere and was quickly hailed as a smash hit musical sensation. With over 20 soul classics performed live on stage it should mean a fun night out. The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra opens 2017's proceedings with their Viennese New Year Gala Concert and the orchestra are back in Exeter in March for a concert entitled 'Russian Fire'. Old favourites such as the ballet 'Cinderella', the opera 'La bohème' and the musical 'Funny Girl' appear on the programme too. I hope you enjoy it and are able to book some shows that appeal to you.

The club's third trip to Stratford-upon-Avon is imminent when we go to see the RSC perform 'The Tempest'. I am listening to requests for 2017's venue for a 'further afield' trip. Let me know. Bristol, Bath?

The Theatre Royal Plymouth and other theatres plan to publish their next season brochures around early December. This will mean that the next club programme will come out just before or soon after Christmas.

Jo Farrell, who has done sterling work for the club as Ticket Secretary for the past ten years, has decided that the time is right to let someone else have a go. Jo will remain on the committee to help and advise. While the new Ticket Secretary is in training all bookings should be sent to me at the address below.

 We would like to recognise Jo's massive contribution to the club and say a big thank you. We will let you know the details soon but don't tell Jo!

 See you soon on a coach going to a theatre somewhere!

Best wishes,
Nick Alen
