Theatre Matinee Club


The Matinee Club covers the four U3A branches in our area ---High Lane, Romiley, Marple, and Marple Bridge & Mellor. The club was started several years ago before Marple Bridge & Mellor was formed and on inception were invited to join in.

The club visits theatres as far afield as Stratford, the Lake District, Theatre Clwyd and the New Vic in Newcastle under Lyme, as well as The Lowry, The Crucible, The Royal Exchange, The Library Theatre, Bolton Octagon and the Buxton Opera House..
We are a Matinee Club and cannot at present organise evening visits.
