Hi everyone,


As we reach the end of the year may I wish all of you a Very Happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you for supporting Trips-Out in 2018 and I hope to see you all again in 2019. Have a great Christmas break.


New this month is the last chance to see Aladdin – The Musical in April. I have also looked at prices for both the Warner Brothers – Harry Potter Studio Tour and for a day out to the BBC Countryfile Event at Blenheim Palace. Prices and dates for these will be in the January newsletter & on the website. These will be in July and the beginning of August.


Also, this month you will see details of an MS Olympia Cruise in March. This is not one of my trips, this is an offer I have been given by the tour company I arrange some of my longer breaks with. They have spaces available at this discounted rate. Ring them direct for more information. They have stated that should enough book from Kent they will do an Ebbsfleet pick up.


I was hoping to book both Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera once they extended. However they have again put their group rates up, meaning I would have to charge over £70 per head for them. I know how loved these shows are, and there may be some willing to pay these prices, but at £70+ I cannot guarantee filling an allocation so will not book currently.


Joseph & His Technicolour Dreamcoat is returning, again, next Summer for a short season at The London Palladium. We Will Rock You starts a tour next Autumn and is at The Marlowe, Canterbury in February, 2020.


In the last few weeks I have seen Rock Of Ages in Dartford, still great fun. Tina and Company in London. Tina has a fantastic finale. Company, we did not enjoy – I did not see the point of it! Typical Sondheim to me.


I am currently looking at prices for a short break to Jersey in 2020.
