New Day Trip! The Band Musical 2018

Did you know we’re offering a new day out this year to the fastest-selling theatre tour in British history? See this hit new production, The Band, with our day trip to the Royal & Derngate Theatre.

Due to popular demand the tour has added more dates around the UK – now is an unmissable opportunity to secure top price tickets for this truly heart-warming production!

Featuring the music of Take That, written by Tim Firth, and produced by David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers and Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Robbie Williams, it debuted in September to a score of excellent reviews from critics and audiences alike around the UK. 

If you remember BBC One’s Saturday night show ‘Let it Shine’ back in January last year, the winners Five to Five star in this new musical comedy about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.

Take That fans can also get set to enjoy plenty of their hits and have all those brilliant memories flooding back.

Woods Tours have a day trip to The Band Musical at the Royal & Derngate Theatre in Northampton on Friday 8th June 2018. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.


January Special Offers

January Special Offers

There’s no better way to banish the January blues than with a bracing walk along a beach, or shopping ‘til you drop in a fabulous city. Luckily there’s still time to book one of our special offers in January! Here’s three ideas from our day trips coming up soon.   

York – Sunday 21st January
York has a medieval charm and unique heritage. Visit here to combine seeing the sights with retail therapy, all within the ancient city walls. Enjoy the atmospheric setting of the cobbled streets of The Shambles, peruse the independent gems or high-street favourites. 

Bath – Saturday 27th January
Discover one of England’s most timeless cities. Maybe explore the relics of one of the best preserved Roman remains in the world, the Roman Baths, discover architectural gems such as Bath Abbey and the Royal Crescent. Or simply wander the unique shops among the elegant Georgian architecture.

Holt and Sheringham – Tuesday 30th January
There’s nothing like a fresh winter’s day near the coast – how about a scenic day out to two of North Norfolk’s most picturesque towns?

Holt, an ancient town a few miles from the coast, is one of the finest independent areas to shop in Norfolk. Maybe window-shop around boutiques and antique shops around its hidden yards and alleyways. A visit to Sheringham wouldn’t be complete without enjoying the award-winning beach. A breath of sea air during these winter months, the flat promenade offers views of the spectacular low cliffs.
