Welcome to our tenth monthly edition of the Group Travel Grapevine!
For those of you who also read our Group Travel Organiser print magazine you'll know that this month the digital Grapevine publication comes in a gap between issues, bringing news without any of the delay that the print schedule would require. We've not been idle however, because our efforts have gone into staging a very successful fourth GO Travel Show at Kempton Park at the beginning of the month on which we bring you a report here.
We've also got a number of great ideas for group visits during the summer months including river trips, the chance of a last ever steam train ride on the Underground, what you'll find at Buckingham Palace at this year's summer opening, and two excellent theatrical performances that you might want to sign up to get tickets for ASAP!
Talking of tickets, places are going fast for our gala Group Travel Awards event in London on 7th June and you'll find an item with more about them and booking arrangements.
Fans of Downton Abbey will be interested in our news of two ways to connect directly with the highly popular story, its locations and characters. And another story that we're sure will be hitting the headlines shortly is H G Wells’ War of the Worlds, being made into a fantastic immersive visitor experience in the City of London complete with Jeff Wayne's music. We've had a sneak preview, and report on that here with links to further information and booking.
See you next month!
