  • The Commitments at The Palace Theatre London

    After a sensational World Premiere at the Palace Theatre in London's West End, the multi-million pound production of The Commitments continues to play to packed houses, garnering rave reviews and proving to be Theatreland’s hottest ticket!

    A fabulous fun night out for all the family featuring over 20 of the greatest soul classics including: Night Train, Try A Little Tenderness, River Deep, Mountain High, In The Midnight Hour, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Save Me, Mustang Sally, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Thin Line Between Love and Hate, Reach Out, Uptight, Knock On Wood, I Can't Turn You Loose and many more.

    The show has been adapted from the novel by Booker prize winning author Roddy Doyle himself and is directed by award winning Jamie Lloyd (Macbeth starring James McAvoy, Urinetown and Richard III starring Martin Freeman).

    The Commitments is the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. The show follows the journey of two members of a frustrated synthesizer band – the opening scene we find them playing but being ignored in a shop window – who turn to Jimmy, the local music expert, for help.

    Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the new line up who he names The Commitments. The humour kicks in as the band get to know each other and their instruments, and proceed through early rehearsals for their first gig. Just as they improve and begin to get a name for themselves they combust. The backing singers are all getting off with the middle aged horn legend, the singer has entered Eurovision and the saxophone player has dangerous leaning towards a jazz career.  

    Price includes return coach travel and Stalls show ticket for the matinee performance starting at 230pm. Various other ticket pricing options may also be available - contact us for further details.

    Running time approximately 2hrs 30 minutes. Subject to travel, you should enjoy some free time before the show. We will aim to drop near to the Palace Theatre which is located on Shaftesbury Avenue, with Leicester Square and Covent Garden fairly close by. We will aim to leave London around 515 to 530pm.

    Please note: The Commitments contains some strong language.

    This may be a shared departure with another day trip. The coach for this excursion may serve more than one destination. Please note that this may mean that the journey to your destination could involve a slightly indirect route. If you are at all concerned about this the Buzzlines sales staff will be happy to advise further.

  • Memorials of the Somme guided tour

    We are now little more than a year away from the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. Words cannot convey the enormity of that event. With the battlefield long since restored, we have just the stirring memorials and the expansive cemeteries to remind us of the sacrifice and staggering scale of loss.

    All these historical factors are well understood, but perhaps less well appreciated is how very local this terrible conflict was, taking place along a front of less than 20 miles.   Many of the most iconic memorials are so close as to be within sight of each other.

    In this series of guided day excursions, we will visit many of the key locations so well portrayed and explained by http://www.johndclare.net/wwi2_FirstDay_map.htm   - see map below and others on line which follow the course of the battle through to its conclusion after nearly five months of fighting.   Each excursion will visit a different set of memorials, with the day always extended to allow us to enjoy an early evening meal en route home at one of the excellent restaurants along the St Leu historic riverfront in Amiens – a chance to reflect that the Somme deserves to be remembered for more than its tragic place in 20th Century history.

    These excursions are all planned around a 08:50 tunnel crossing which should get us to the battlefield area via the Albert-Bapaume Road, itself a feature of the Front Line, by around 12 Noon. In travelling to the memorials that are on our itinerary for that day we cannot help but pass others. If anyone has a special reason to want to visit any particular location or cemetery please let us know when you book so that we can try to adapt the itinerary for you.

    We will arrange lunch stops on an opportunity basis on each trip. There are excellent light meal facilities locally: in February and March we will aim to break for lunch in the “Ocean Villas” tea rooms re-named by the troops after the name of its village – Auchonvillers! Then in April we can give ourselves some free time for lunch in Peronne, and in June we will stop at the tea rooms at the Ulster Tower monument.

    The schedule on all these excursions will be to leave the battlefield in mid-afternoon for the short journey of 40 minutes or so into Amiens, where we then have plenty of time for some late afternoon sightseeing before we enjoy an evening meal, departing the city at around 20:00 for our motorway return to Calais, around 90 minutes away.

    We have not included the price of entry to the Somme 1916 Museum in Albert or the Historial in Peronne in the excursion price as they are optional aspects of the programme and the fees involved are relatively small (around 4-6 Euros).

    Price includes return travel by coach and scheduled Eurotunnel crossing.

    Schedule of trips:

    Monday 16th February 2015   Mametz Wood, Dantzig Alley and Flatiron Copse Cemeteries, La Boisselle Crater and Albert (for Somme 1916 Museum – small additional entry fee)

    Thursday 12th March 2015     Poziéres, Longueval, Delville Wood, Caterpillar Valley Cemetery and Albert

    Sunday 19th April 2015    Thiepval and Peronne (for Historial – small additional entry fee)

    Tuesday 23rd June 2015 2015   Thiepval, Newfoundland Memorial Beaumont-Hamel, Ulster Tower and neighbouring Cemeteries

  • Reims & A Taste of Champagne

    In this compelling and nicely balanced short-break programme we offer a great chance to experience the cultural riches of Champagne region in armchair comfort and without overstretching your budget. Based at the 4* Mercure Reims Cathedrale, we visit the Mercier Champagne House in Epernay and tour its underground cellar complex, going on to a guided visit to Verdun where we learn something of the terrible conflict around the city which saw over 700,000 casualties between 1916 and 1918.

    So often bypassed by UK visitors intent on getting to the south of France, Reims is worthy of a long weekend in its own right.  Founded by the Gauls, this was a major Roman city and later became of great monarchical significance as the place of crowning of the Kings of France.  Its legacy of historic buildings is headed by the magnificent St Etienne Cathedral, dating back to the 12th Century and now a World Heritage site.  Countless other sites of interest include Roman arches believed to date back at least to the 3rd century; and from more modern times, the remarkable design of the City’s new stadium floodlights which are almost science-fictional in appearance.

    ITINERARY

    Leaving Kent on Friday morning, we take a convenient Channel Tunnel crossing giving us time to break for lunch and do any necessary shopping at the Cité-Europe complex in Calais.  We then continue south on the A26 Autoroute for the approximately 3-hour trip to Reims where we are welcomed with a glass of champagne by the 4* Mercure Reims Central Cathedrale. The hotel is centrally located only a 5 – 10 minute walk from Reims Cathedral and the large pedestrianised central area encompassing not only the cathedral itself, but excellent shops and cafés  

    By popular request this is a Bed & Breakfast arrangement with our hotel – eating out is one of the great experiences of France and Reims has a great range of bistros and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. 

    On Saturday we depart first for the great champagne centre of Epernay on the River Marne.  Here we enjoy a tour by train of several kilometres of the Mercier Champagne House’s underground cellar network!

    From Epernay our attention turns eastwards as we make for the small city of Verdun on the River Meuse.  An important French stronghold over many centuries, Verdun is fated to go down in history as site of the longest running and most costly conflict of the Great War, with over 700,000 casualties.  We give ourselves time to visit the old town and see for ourselves the many relics and memorials of the Battle of Verdun and the city’s earlier history, before we go on to visit one of the battlegrounds – Fort Douaumont.

    From Verdun it’s just an hour to return to Reims and our own choice of restaurant.

    For Sunday we are free to enjoy Reims, not forgetting that if it’s a nice day there is a pleasant towpath stroll to be enjoyed alongside the canal which links the Rivers Aisne and Marne. The heart of Reims is only a short walk from our hotel, so you can explore the fascinating city with it’s lovely cathedral and the museum where the Second World War surrender was signed. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in the town to satisfy every appetite.

    On Monday, we leave Reims in mid-morning to head back to Calais, but we have a treat in store as en route we break off to the Village des Metiers d'Antan et Musée Motobécane, St Quentin.  Best we leave the description to a recent Trip Advisor reviewer who has kindly allowed us to repeat his report…

    This is not to be missed when visiting St Quentin. All the traditional trades are superbly presented in a series of displays which authentically and atmospherically illustrate and evoke the daily life in France in the past - of its shops and businesses and transport - a wonderful and nostalgic record - together with the Motobécane bicycles and motorbikes which were manufactured in St Quentin.

    From Le Village we head into St Quentin centre for a lunch break before resuming our journey to Calais and an early-evening crossing.   We will also schedule a short hypermarket stop if time allows.

    Buzzlines regrets the hefty single supplement in this case – unfortunately the hotel has no single rooms and single travellers will occupy a double or twin room.
