Since 1983, the name Newmarket Holidays has been synonymous with great value-for-money guided holidays and escorted short breaks. Over the past thirty years, Newmarket Holidays have expanded their portfolio in order to offer their customers an even wider variety of choices than ever before, from day trips to sporting or musical events right through to three-week trips of a lifetime to Australia or the Far East. Among the more popular deals offered by Newmarket Holidays are the selection of theatre breaks to London’s West End. Each Newmarket Holidays trip includes return travel by either coach or rail depending on the break chosen, accommodation in a carefully selected three- or four-star hotel, tickets to the show of the customer’s choice, and the services of a Newmarket Holidays Tour Guide throughout the duration of the trip. Customers selecting the Newmarket Holidays Dine and Dance theatre trip will also experience an extravagant dinner and disco at their four-star hotel, after enjoying a matinee performance.
All the prices quoted on the Newmarket Holidays website include the price of a standard ticket to see the hit musical, ‘Wicked’. Newmarket Holidays customers can choose from many shows being performed in the West End, and upgrade to a top-tier ticket for an additional supplement. Coach or rail travel to London is arranged by Newmarket Holidays from a series of national locations and all transfers to London City Centre are included where applicable.
‘Wicked’ tells the back story of the Wicked Witch of the West as first encountered in Frank L. Baum’s ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Based on the book by Gregory Maguire, ‘Wicked’ portrays Elphaba as a misunderstood rebel dealing with a lifetime of prejudice after being born with an unfortunate greenish tinge to her skin. She protests against the domination of the Oz ministry and the mistreatment, banishment and murder of talking Animals. The show tells the tale of Elphaba’s school days, including her reluctant yet burgeoning friendship with the airheaded Glinda, who will one day become the Good Witch of the North. While essentially a story about friendship, this tale has many darker and more political elements and should appeal to both children and adults alike.
