Let’s get back to enjoying theatre and day trips!
Essex Lifestyle
May 7, 2021

It’s been along wait but Theatre’s & Venue’s are planning their re-openings. Woo Hoo!!!

Some theatre’s opened on 17th May with social distancing, but the majority will open on 21st June at full capacity. We are so excited to get back to live entertainment. Further ocial updates will be released nearer these dates.

Houses, Gardens, Boats & Trains all have to keep social distancing in place until 21st June also.  Gardens have greater numbers  because your outside but we still need to get you there inside a coach.

A&Tventures have made  the decision not to run any trips before July and there are several reasons for this. We want everyone to feel and be safe so hopefully everyone will be vaccinated. People need time to readjust to being “let out”. Not all venues are able to take groups with social distancing & Theatre’s definitely can’t.  Numbers would be limited on coaches, which incur additional costs.

We look forward to seeing everyone very soon, Annette & Tracy A&Tventures
