Visit to Barber Institute and Birmingham Hippodrome
Tuesday 12 November 2019

We shall leave the Abbey Foregate at 8.30am. On arrival at the Barber Institute in Birmingham we will have coffee and biscuits followed by a tour of the gallery, including a small exhibition of Jan de Beer paintings. 

We will then transfer to the Birmingham Hippodrome for a matinee performance by Acosta Danza dance company, which was formed by Carlos Acosta. The company is made up of the best dancers Cuba has to offer who are trained in both ballet and contemporary dance. Carlos Acosta will make a guest appearance. 

Lunch is not included. There is a cafe opposite the theatre and in the Hippordrome itself. People may choose to bring their own lunch. 

We should be back in Shrewsbury around 6pm.
