Trip to The Nutcracker

We are very happy to bring you the opportunity to see The Vienna Festival Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker on Saturday 23rd November 2019.

The ballet is showing at Alban Arena in St Albans and the ticket price of £30 (adults and children) includes a return coach journey departing from outside St Francis’ College on Broadway at midday, returning at approximately 6 pm.

Ticket Sales: Via the Classlist site and app. (User registration and approval required)

Tickets are available to parents, their families and friends and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. We have 50 tickets and please note that your purchase will be non-refundable. We are also unable to sell tickets for the ballet show only.

If you aim not to have a supervising adult (over 18) in your group please contact the PA to discuss this before purchasing any tickets.

Our insurance assumes that those travelling are of reasonable health and please contact the PA with any questions relating to this.

Each child over 18 months will require a ticket. If you are intending to travel with a child under 3 years old please contact us for further information about tickets and transport.

This will be the first time we are selling tickets online via Classlist/Stripe and please be patient if you encounter any delays – we anticipate that your card transactions will go through smoothly.

We look forward to having you join with us on this Christmas outing and further details and joining instructions will be sent out within two weeks.
