Hi everyone,


As the festive season is upon us, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you to everyone who has been interested in Trips-Out in 2019. Hope to see you all in 2020.


Having just come back from our first three day trip to Bath, I have to recommend the Festival of Lights at Longleat, they really are amazing. Both Bath & Winchester Xmas markets were very busy, but the weather was with us and I hope it is kind next weekend too. If anyone is interested in going next year please let me know, so I can get booked early for 2020. The Mercure, Bristol was an excellent base for us.


A new musical based on the story of The Drifters opens next Autumn. Featuring all the Drifters hits, ‘Drifters Girl’ will star Beverly Knight. It is based on the lady who managed the group after their founder died in 1967.


The Addams Family is touring again next year. This was great fun when we saw it on tour this year. No cast has yet been announced.


Waitress, The Musical has announced the end of it’s London run in July. It will then go on tour around the UK. It plans then to return to London.


The Cats film opens in the cinema on the 20th December. Lots of big name stars will ensure it is a hit.


Shane Ritchie is to star again in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie on tour.


The musical The Boy in The Dress has opened to good reviews in Stratford Upon Avon. It is to come to the West End and looks to be a good choice to see. The music is written by Guy Chambers & Robbie Williams. The book was written by David Walliams. The story is based around a 12 year old boy who is the football teams star striker, but likes wearing dresses.
