Here is an update of the remaining Programme of visits for this year, following requests for more detail from those who have not been able to read the relevant flyers; contact Sharon for the up-to date position on her Unique Experiences.
Wednesday 19 June: lunchtime cruise on River Trent from Colwick, Nottingham. £44.00 pp even includes driver gratuity (as on all our coach trips) and wine with your meal! Only 10 places left.
Thursday 27 June: Louth Theatre: The Mikado performed by New London Opera Group. £15.50 per ticket (5 available).
Wednesday 10 July: Newby Hall & Gardens, near Ripon. Beautiful house and grounds, with conducted tours of House and Gardens. Full day with spare time to enjoy a beautiful property, for garden lovers and all to savour. £42.00 pp.
Saturday 31 August/Sunday 01 September: our only overnight trip this year, to tour Ushaw Hall, designed by Augustus Pugin (the son), near Durham, then evening performance of the outdoor 90 minute spectacular which is ‘Kynren, an Epic Tale of England.’ Highly rated by all who have seen it previously, it tells the history of England in one go! On Sunday a day at Beamish Living Museum, which must be visited every few years to see the developments which take place. Deposit £75.00 pp, final cost dependent on numbers.
Wednesday 18 September: Yorkshire industrial and social history at Elsecar Heritage Centre, to see how the Fitzwilliam family developed their mineral rights (shades of Gentleman Jack!), with the 1795 Newcomen beam engine in operation solely for us, and an exclusive train on the Elsecar Heritage Railway. Spare time to explore. Move on to the fantastic home of the Fitzwilliams at Wentworth Woodhouse, with the widest frontage of any house in the UK, and now being brought back to life by a Preservation Trust. £50.00 pp for a very comprehensive day.
