Theatre

Due to popularity, we have two theatre groups who organise visits throughout the year to a variety of productions, both matinee and evening performances, across venues in the Greater Manchester area. If you are interested in joining, take a look at the programmes below and contact the appropriate group’s convenor(s). Both groups hold regular planning meetings at which you may express an interest in attending specific productions from the programme or you may like to suggest additional productions for the group to see.

Discounts are often available to us when block booking tickets so you may be able to save money versus attending under your own steam.

Theatre 1

Convenor: Linda Weir
To contact Linda, please email salfordu3a@gmail.com marking the subject line of your email ‘FAO: Linda Weir’.


When and where: Planning meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month, 11-12noon at Walkden Congregational Church. The convenor provides information on the various productions at theatres within the Greater Manchester area. Members choose whichever production they would like to see, (they do not all have to attend the same production or performance), and the convenor makes the booking.
