Chinnor and District U3A Outings, Events & Holidays 2018
Outings coordinated by Sheila and Peter with input from the new Steering Group.
Information Sheets available at Monthly Meetings approx. 3 months in advance
JANUARY: NO OUTING.
FEBRUARY: 8th "The Play that Goes Wrong" Aylesbury Waterside Theatre Matinee performance
This play has been running for some time in London and has been enjoyed in Australia and New York. It has received many awards and described very favourably by many critics. Time for a good laugh. A good old fashioned farce. Let's go and have a good laugh. A matinee at this time of the year and not too far from home seems a good idea. I hope you agree.
FEBRUARY: 19th BENTLEY PRIORY (home of Fighter Command for Battle of Britain). Peter H. FULLY BOOKED.
Bentley Priory Museum tells the history of the Priory, a beautiful Grade 2 listed country mansion, from the impressive architecture of Sir John Sloane, to stories of former residents including Queen Adelaide (Spouse of William 4th).
