Please see below the list of events for the our Winter Social Programme.

As you may know, we are able to get some good prices on ticket, which we further subsidise from the Association’s budget, so the Social Programme is a great way of experiencing some of the fabulous events London offers, without breaking the bank!

If you would like tickets,  please email me at,  listing the event(s) you wish to book,  your name, your full address and the number of tickets you require. Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis, and they do tend to sell out quite quickly.

Once you have emailed me your request, I will send a confirmation email, and the details for payment via bank transfer. The tickets will be distributed to participants a day or so before each event.


THEATRE: ‘WICKED’ at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.  Tuesday 12th November. 7.30pm.  TICKETS: £18

We have some good seats for this very popular musical. This is the second time we have offered it on the Social Programme.

THEATRE: ‘MASTER HAROLD AND THE BOYS’ at the Lyttleton, National Theatre.  Monday 16th December. 7.30pm.  TICKETS: £10

In a grubby tearoom in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in 1950, two years after the start of apartheid, this gentle, but very powerful play explores the the tensions, sadness, anger and humour of those times.

EXHIBITION: ANTONY GORMLEY at The Royal Academy. Saturday 23rd November. 11.20am  TICKETS: £12

From the British coastline to the rooftops of Manhattan, Antony Gormley’s sculptures are recognised across the world. With work from his 45-year career alongside major new installations created for the Academy’s galleries, this is his most ambitious exhibition in more than ten years.

THEATRE:  ‘A CHRISTMAS CAROL’ at the Old Vic Theatre. Monday 6th January. 7.00pm. TICKETS: £24

Christmas in London wouldn’t be complete without Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. This year, Matthew Warchus’ smash-hit production of the classic holiday tale returns to London’s Old Vic for a limited festive run. There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than with A Christmas Carol, Dickens’ masterful tale of redemption.

THEATRE: ‘CYRANO de BERGERAC’ at the Playhouse Theatre. Tuesday 14th January. 7.30PM   TICKETS: £28

Starring James McAvoy, this is one of the most sought after tickets in London currently.  Cyrano de Bergerac tells a story about a man as gifted with a pen as he is with a sword. He is desperately in love with Roxane, but his incredibly large nose causes him to doubt himself. A heart-warming evening at the theatre.

We are awaiting confirmation of a couple of additional events. Please check for updates at
