March sees our purchase date for Birmingham Royal Ballet's production of Beauty and the Beast (Friday 3rd May, £37/£47) and the Agatha Christie play The Mousetrap (Monday 24th June, £39/£44). I can usually get hold of tickets after I have bought the main tranche, but they will probably not be such good seats.
Two big shows are coming to Bristol, the New York production of The King and I (Thu eve 26 Mar(£53/£70) and Matinee Wed 1 Apr, next year (2020) and The Lion King September/October this year, not yet on sale at time of writing though I have requested tickets for at least one evening and one matinee performance so by all means put in a request now and I will confirm once tickets become available.
The other trips planned are: Kinky Boots 7th March, £51/£60), Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake (13 March, £51/61), The Magic Flute (11 April, £56/£69), Rock of Ages ( 18 April, £41/£50), Matilda (21 May Evening and 29 May Half Term Matinee (£62/£72), Fame (11 June, £45/£54), The Mousetrap (24 June, £39/£44), Calendar Girls — The Musical (16 July, £47/£59) and We Will Rock You (Queen) (18 March 2020!, £45/£58).
