Hi all

It's been ages since the last socials email (apologies), so here are a number of the potential socials we are looking at - some don't yet have a date, so please let us know if you're interested and we'll find a date everyone can do over the next few months:
 
Panto!
Is anyone up for a night at the Panto?  Our own Kevin Johnson is directing 'Jack and the Beanstalk' with the Abbey Community Theatre, to be performed on Thu 30th Nov (7:30pm), Fri 1st Dec (7:30pm) & Sat 2nd Dec (1pm & 5pm).  More information and tickets are available on the Abbey Community Theatre website (http://www.abbeycommunitytheatre.co.uk/).  Let us know which day you can make and we'll get some tickets.

Sunset Boulevard
A production at MK theatre.  Let us know if you would like to see it and we'll get some tickets for one of the days if there's enough interest. http://www.whatsonstage.com/milton-keynes-theatre/shows/sunset-boulevard_122499/

Escape room
We did an escape room in MK a couple of years ago and it was great.  There's now one in Northampton, which we're planning on having a go at.  In case you don't know what they are, you have an hour to solve various clues and escape from the room you're put into.  The Northampton one has two rooms and it looks to be around 13 each for a group of 6 (more each for less people).  Let us know if you're interested and we'll decide on a room (you can't have done the room before) and a date. http://trappd.com/book-now/northampton/

Rugby
Belinda has suggested we go and see a Saints match.  Let us know if you're interested and we'll pick a game people can make.

Bingo
Again, something we did a few years ago and enjoyed - so it's time to have another go.  Let us know if you're interested and we'll pick a date.

Crystal Maze
There are Crystal Maze arenas in London and Manchester, and it would be great to have a go at this iconic TV show.  They look to get booked up fairly quickly, so this would probably be an early 2018 weekend day activity.  Again let us know if you're interested and we'll book on the basis of what's available and when people can make.   https://the-crystal-maze.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2M3nsr341gIVChMbCh0y-APmEAAYASAAEgL3LfD_BwE


Stand up comedy
We always go to some stand up during the winter, and this one is no exception.  We've picked a few weeknight ones out from the many on offer around Northampton.  Let us know what you can make and we'll book tickets for those a few of us would like to see (or if you have an idea for one not on the list we can add it!):

Thurs 30 Nov - Walnut tree pub, Blisworth
Tues 5 Dec - Picturedrome, Northampton
Thurs 7 Dec - Trilogy (Cripps recreation centre)

Picturedrome comedy isn't on the website but it appears you can buy tickets for it...


Named comedy
Let us know what you're interested in, and we'll get tickets (assuming they haven't sold out by then, all prices not including booking fee):

Jason Manford - Wed 7 Feb 18 or Thurs 24 May 18 - Derngate, Northampton.  28:50  (https://www.royalandderngate.co.uk/whats-on/jason-manford-2018/)

Sarah Millican - 14-16 Nov 18 - Derngate, Northampton (Jayne has suggested we see this, due to seat avaiability I suspect it'll be Wed 14th, but I suspect no one has any idea what they're doing that week next year anyway!).  28:50 (https://www.royalandderngate.co.uk/whats-on/sarah-millican-18/)


That's more than enough to be going on with for now!  Please let us know using the email at the bottom of the page what you're interested in and we'll get some tickets/dates booked.  Or if you have any ideas for other socials, also let us know.

Plus watch this space for details of the walking group Christmas meal!

Best wishes
