“9 – 5: The Musical” in June split opinion with some of our 79 attendees absolutely loving it others not so much; spirits were not dampened by the horrendous journey – two hours ten minutes to get to The Savoy from Cross Court, just as well we now leave at 5 p.m.! Our jollies to “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” in September and “Come From Away” in October are both going ahead, all done and dusted – as always, there are no tickets left after the closing date and we don’t operate a waiting list. Lots of members have been asking about the outing to Cadogan Hall for the RPO’s festive concert: not advertised yet, watch this space…

 Please read the booking information -  it should cover all you need to know - do get in touch with any queries

“Join the fun as the world’s favourite feel-good musical, MAMMA MIA! celebrates its twentieth anniversary in London’s West End. Since premiering there in 1999, the irresistible smash-hit has become a global phenomenon that’s captured the hearts of millions around the world.

The sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads on a Greek island idyll, all unfolding to the magic of ABBA’s timeless pop masterpieces.”

This special group rate is too good to miss, we haven’t been before and many members have requested a trip to this one. We have 60 tickets and a 60-seat coach: first come, first served!

Booking information

Complete the booking slip – in full, please, this saves us having to look up your contact details from our files when it comes to confirming your place(s).

Places cannot be “held” by phone or email; your request goes on the list when we receive full payment.

Let us know at the time of booking if you have any special requests: a seat at the front of the coach (seats in the middle cannot be accommodated), an aisle or middle-of-the-row seat in the theatre etc., and we will do our best to accommodate them.

If you receive the information by e-mail but don’t have a printer, or it isn’t working, please copy out the details we need from you onto a piece of paper:

Your name, contact telephone number, e-mail address, the trip you are applying for, how many tickets you would like and the total of your enclosed cheque.

Cheques should be made payable to: Mrs C Baker

Please write a separate one for each trip – this makes it easier to refund should an outing not go ahead. To spread the cost, cheques can be dated with the “book and pay by” date for each outing as they are presented after that.

Return the booking slip with full payment to our home address:

Alan and Claire Baker

82 Littleworth Road, Downley, High Wycombe, HP13 5UY

Don’t forget to enclose a stamped addressed envelope – we no longer deliver tickets by hand. 

Once the closing date has been reached, we work out if the trip is viable and will let you know you are booked. The first named person on the booking slip will be notified, please pass on confirmation to other members of your group. If the trip is cancelled through lack of support, your payment will be returned.

The book and pay by date is the last day bookings can be accepted. After that, we have to pay in full for the exact number of tickets required so there are never any left over.

Full joining instructions and tickets, when issued, will be posted to your home address at least two weeks before the outing. We do this enabling you to have a crack at getting to the venue yourself should you miss the coach. Please double check the departure time in case this has been changed.

We do not operate a waiting list system: if you cannot go for any reason, sell your ticket(s) on and let us know the name(s) of the new people travelling. If you cannot sell them on, please let us know that you are not coming so we are not waiting for you to turn up on the day.

Cross Court is the only pick up and drop off. Travellers should not approach the driver to make other arrangements.

Payment is generally non-refundable; we do our best to make refunds where possible.

Remember to let us know if your contact details change. Do call with any questions.
