Theatre Trippers Club for Older People in Miles Platting

Late last year a new community group was started in Miles Platting and Ancoats led by Mike Bishop and Kath Bates, with funding awarded through the Ambition for Ageing programme and Age Friendly Manchester. The idea was to create a club for those who enjoy theatre or are looking to try something new. Manchester has many theatres with a number offering good discounts for community groups.

Since starting the group members have been to see around ten performances and have many more planned for the rest of this year. Each theatre trip has attracted about twelve members and many new friendships have been made. Some of the group's favourite theatres include the new HOME theatre and the local Hope Mill Theatre on Pollard Street in Ancoats.

For more information please email Mike Bishop or telephone Kathryn Bates on 07961643781 (after 11am).
