Thornbury Theatregoers grew out of Jackie's idea to enjoy the theatre without the worry of driving at night or finding a car park. Our first venture was in late 1998 with a trip to the Theatre Royal, Bath to see The Woman in Black. We organise ten or so trips a year and have widened our scope from plays to include some classical concerts, and occasional ballet and light opera.
We try to book best accessible seats and regularly visit Theatre Royal Bath, Everyman at Cheltenham, Bristol Old Vic, Hippodrome and Colston Hall. Each year we organise a day out and have visited the RSC at Stratford-upon-Avon, Malvern Theatres, the New Theatre Cardiff and most recently the Watermill Theatre at Newbury.
We travel by coach with Applegates and our main pick-up point is outside Gillingstool School in Thornbury, convenient for Rock Street car park. When travelling towards Bristol or Bath there is an extra pick-up point at Rudgeway.
