STRATFORD: “the play’s the thing” “Behind the Scenes” tour & “Troilus & Cressida”

On this visit we shall spend the day at the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford on Avon.

In the morning, at 10.30 am we shall have a “Behind the Scenes” Tour which is a guided tour in the theatre during which we shall learn about the history of the RSC & its theatres, explore a production in more depth and learn about the theatre making process.

After lunch (which is not booked, and not included in the price so you can do what you like), at 1.15 pm, we shall see the matinee performance of the current production of Troilus & Cressida in the main RSC theatre. (The group price is vastly reduced - the normal price is £62). Carolyn needs to pay for the tickets to confirm the booking so please book and pay as soon as possible. At the moment 25 places are reserved.

The trip will cost £63 (£65 for non-members) which includes the coach, the guided tour and the theatre tickets for Troilus & Cressida. It does NOT include lunch.

We shall leave Burford Priory Lane at 9 am; and be back at about 5.30 pm.
