Theatre Group

The Theatre Group aims to provide regular monthly trips to the theatre to see a wide range of plays, dramas, comedies and musicals. We try to use local theatres (e.g. in Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Oxford and Milton Keynes) as much as possible, but we occasionally venture further afield (e.g. London).

The choice of event is made by group members. The dates and costs are subject to booking arrangements.

It may be possible to arrange for the group to read some plays before attending the performances, limited by the availability of scripts.

Costs vary, depending on ticket prices. We try to find the most economical method of transport to each venue.

Payments may be made by giving a cheque to the event organiser or to the Group Leader. Cheques should be payable to Haddenham U3A and have the name of the event written on the back. However, we prefer payment by internet or telephone banking to the credit of Haddenham U3A at CAF Bank; sort code 40-52-40, account no. 00021010, with the event quoted as reference. As soon as you have used one of these methods, please email or ring the Treasurer ( or 01844 292393) and the event organiser to confirm that your payment has been sent.
