(Includes ticket and travel)

Come and join the Friends of Helmsley Arts Centre on a Theatre Trip for a matinee performance of the musical ‘Kiss Me, Kate’, by the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North at Leeds Grand Theatre. This is a real treat of a show, bringing to life Cole Porter’s witty jazz-inflected score where some of the show-stopping numbers include Another Op’nin’ Another Show, Always True To You, In My Fashion, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and Too Darn Hot. Pick-up points for the bus taking us to Leeds will be from: Malton - Milton Rooms at 9.50am Old Malton - Bus Stop at 10.00am Pickering - Eastgate Car Park at 10.15am Kirkbymoorside Market Place - Towlers Chemist at 10.30am Helmsley - Co-Op at 10.45am Thirsk - Market Square at 11.15am There will be approx. two hours between our arrival in Leeds and the 2.15pm performance, to have time for refreshments before the show, and afterwards the bus will collect us from the Theatre at 5.30pm. Book online www.helmsleyarts.co.uk or at the Box Office 01439 771700. The final booking date is Friday 20 April.
