THEATRE VISITS

Did you know that Fulwood Methodist Church has a very successful theatre visit group? Over the last 10 years we have been to see over 100 performances of plays, operas, musicals and ballets in Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, Bolton and Keswick. In each case we enjoy good quality seats at reduced prices and executive coach travel direct to the theatre. Membership of the group is free and open to all who love the theatre. Most visits are to matinee performances and are ideal for those who don’t want the hassle of booking, travel and parking.

NOTE - These trips are open to anyone, whether regulars at the church or not.

 

Details of future visits are listed below.

For further information and to register your interest, please contact Sharon Beck at Fulwood Methodist Church
