Theatre Visits arranged by Cathy Whelan

2020 has been a most difficult and life changing year. I hope you have all survived with your spirits and sanity intact and you are all healthy and well.

This has been a devastating time for our theatres. Many shows postponed several times, as lockdown, stops and starts.

Our U3A Theatre Group had 2 shows, at the Louth Riverhead Theatre that were booked and paid for last January.

  1. The Government Inspector now moved to 6th of 0ctober 2021.
  2. Oliver has now been cancelled.

The Louth Theatre is a small company run entirely by volunteers. They have offered to refund all the tickets for the cancelled show. People were also given the option to donate their ticket money.

I am happy to say that many chose to donate their tickets, to help the struggling company.

Frances Brindle, who runs all the bookings has asked me pass on thanks to the group. She said the very generous contributions are very much appreciated. I hope the Theatre manages to survive this challenging time.

We still have the show now booked for October. This as usual was a block booking and this will probably need to have the seating changed, if social distancing is still required.

Many thanks for all your patience and understanding.

Thanks again to all those who donated.

I do hope the Theatre survives and that we are soon able to enjoy more shows.
