18th May 2022

Chartwell House


Kit Mitchell

Ightham Mote is a wonderful 14th-century moated manor house.  We have a personal guided tour of the house before it opens to the public, followed by time to buy lunch in the café.  We then move on to Chartwell, Churchill’s country home, where we have 1½ hours for a self-guided tour of the house and garden. 


The coach departure time is 8.30am.  It is an early time because of the need to get to Ightham Mote before its normal opening time.  We are then due back at 5pm.

National Trust members please bring your NT card for this visit.

Places are still available at £28 for NT members and £60 for non-members.

29th October 2022

Mill at Sonning


Wolfgang Harmannn

The Mill at Sonning is holding seats for us but they require us to finalise our final number shortly after our May lunch, so sign up now.


The play starts with Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered accountant, picking up the wrong briefcase on the Tube in which he finds £1.5million in used notes! Then off to Spain with a spiralling confusion of fibs, false names and frantic deceptions.


The cost will be about £85 to cover coach, parking, gratuities, lunch and theatre performance, with a deposit of £35 in May and the balance at our August lunch.
