Come and see The Nutcracker with the Sotonettes!

Halloween is over, bonfire night will soon be past and the decorations are already in the shops… it must mean it’s almost Christmas!  We’ve tried to avoid that particular ‘C-word’ until now but unfortunately it’s less than 2 months away!

Since the Sotonettes usually meet on the last Tuesday of every month, we never have a December meeting as it’s always too close to Christmas and New Year.  This year, instead of missing out completely, we’re arranging an evening out for all our members and their friends/family/partners/children to go and see The Nutcracker at the Nuffield Theatre.  It sounds like it will be a brilliant production – if you’d like to know more about it, have a look at the Nuffield Theatre website.


The important details:

When: Thursday 5th December, 7pm

Where: The Nuffield Theatre, University Road, Southampton, SO17 1TR

How much: £9 each

The committee have made a flexible block booking for the evening so hopefully everyone who’d like to come along can get a ticket and we can all sit together.  Numbers are limited though, so it will be first come, first served.

If you’d like to join us, and we really hope you will, please email us at with the number of tickets you’d like.  If you want to pay by electronic bank transfer we’ll email you back the details, or you can pay by cash/cheque to any committee member at our upcoming craft meeting, book club or main November meeting.  If you won’t be at any of those meetings, let us know and you can give us the money on the night.

We’ve also created a Facebook event for this evening’s festivities – you can find it at:!/events/1430425537181544/

If this has got you in the theatrical mood, don’t forget about our visit to see Frankenstein at the Harbour Lights Picturehouse on Thursday November 14th!  More details in our blog post here and on Facebook.
