The Group normally meets at 9.30am on the third Friday of each month, in Southwell, to choose performances we would like to see as a group and to discuss the most recent productions we have seen.
Members are asked to put themselves on the mailing lists for the theatres in Nottingham, Mansfield and Newark, but a summary of information about forthcoming productions at local theatres is e-mailed to members prior to each monthly meeting. The group normally sees productions at local theatres but, from time to time, it has organized trips to London, Stratford and the outdoor theatre at Tolethorpe - and invited members of Group 2 to join us.
We usually go to one production a month.
The pandemic has made our normal activities impossible. We have considered meeting on Zoom and substituting watching theatre relays on You Tube or TV for live performances. As relatively few of these are available, and discussion, involving a fairly large number of people, is not easy on Zoom, we have decided not to meet in this way. Any information, from local theatres about their plans for future productions, is e-mailed to members.

Theatre Group 2
Theatre Group 2 meets on the fourth Friday of every month, 10.30 upstairs at Gossips, King Street. At the meeting we plan our theatre visits and discuss the productions we have seen. Our aim is to book at least one theatre visit per month to one of the many local venues. We plan to go further afield if the opportunity arises.
The group is very friendly, with eclectic tastes ranging from classical and comic drama, to dance and musicals. Currently the group is full and there is a waiting list.
Please contact Linda and Stephen Rogers, by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org further details.
The Merry Wives of Windsor
The Theatre Group enjoyed a trip to the open air theatre at Tolethorpe on 14th July 2018 to see a matinee performance of the Merry Wives of Windsor, all set in 1947, followed by a picnic in the grounds.
