SUMMER COURSE

IN
ENGLISH PHONETICS

Social Events
Programme
13-24 August 2018
GENERAL INFORMATION
A special programme of social events and activities has been organised
for all members of the course. A brief description of each
event is enclosed. All events will take place outside class
hours. You are not forced to join in all the events, of
course. However, we strongly encourage you to join as
many as you can, since this is a wonderful opportunity to
visit some beautiful places in and around London and you
will also have a chance to get seats for some of London's
top shows!

The price of tickets quoted in this brochure is subject to availability. Since


numbers are likely to be limited, they will be allocated on a ‘first come, first
served” basis. Payment should be made either by debit or credit card.
We regret that cash is not accepted. We will not process any payment for
tickets that are not available and you will only be charged for tickets that are
guaranteed. If you are interested in any of the events, it is recommended
that you complete and return the enclosed booking form as soon as possible
to avoid any disappointment.

For travel around London, we highly recommend that you arrange to get an
Oyster Card (since ticket machines are no longer available at bus stops). You
can buy Oyster Cards from any underground tube station or buy online, as
these will provide you with the cheapest single fare. Information about Oyster
Cards can be found here on the Transport for London (tfl) website:

history, it's home to the Cutty Sark, a restored 19th-century ship, the huge
National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Market, the Emirates air cables and
the classical buildings of the Old Royal Naval College. The modern O2
arena sits on a peninsula to the north. Overlooking peaceful Greenwich
Park, the Royal Observatory is the site of the Greenwich meridian line,

choice is yours!

MUSIC AND DRAMA
Chicago
Phoenix Theatre
Wednesday 15th August
Price £24 (including booking fee)

Chicago is officially back home in


London’s West End and is now
starring Martin Kemp, from pop
legends Spandau Ballet and BBC’s
Eastenders, as Billy Flynn.

Winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy, the sexiest,
sassiest, most sophisticated Broadway musical in history is celebrating 21
years of standing ovations in style. The dazzling tale of jazz slayer Roxie
Hart, her cell-block rival Velma Kelly and the smooth-talking lawyer Billy
Flynn has thrilled audiences across the world since 1996.
With the original Broadway choreography by Ann Reinking in the style of
Bob Fosse and a sizzling score featuring the classic songs “Razzle
Dazzle”, “Cell Block Tango” and “All That Jazz”, Chicago is so good it
should be illegal.

Book now, it’d be a crime to miss it…

Limited tickets are available, so don’t delay and book your tickets today!

Bat Out of Hell


Dominion Theatre
Tuesday 21st August
Price £15 (including booking fee)

Come and join us on. Originally written


as a musical, Bat Out of Hell went on to
become one of the most iconic and
successful albums of all time. 40 years
later, this critically acclaimed, smash hit
‘brings the theatre and its audience thrillingly alive’ (The Stage) with its jaw-
dropping, boundary pushing spectacle and Jim Steinman and Meat Loafs
legendary hits. Book your tickets now for this ‘crazy wild child of a rock ‘n’
roll musical at the Dominion Theatre.

Limited tickets are available, so don’t delay and book your tickets today!
MUSIC AND DRAMA

As You Like It
Shakespeare Globe Theatre
Wednesday 22nd August
Price £22 (including booking fee)

Rosalind, the daughter of an unjustly


exiled duke, fails in love with the
wronged Orlando, a courtier deprived
of his birthright by his brother – but her usurping uncle, jealous of her
popularity, banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy and accompanied
by her cousin Celia, she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest
of Arden.
There she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man,
counsels him in the art of love. A firm favourite among Shakespeare’s
comedies, and featuring some of his best-loved characters, As You Like It
runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and brilliant
conversation, gentle satire, forgiveness and reparation.
Limited tickets are available, so don’t delay and book your tickets today!
(Oyster cards are required on these journeys and are not included in the ticket prices shown above).
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
 How can I get tickets for the social events?

We operate on a ‘first come first serve’ basis. By completing the social


event booking form and returning it to us by email you will be eligible to get
tickets subject to availability. You will then be required to come and collect
the tickets in-person and pay for them in the Summer Office on the first day

if you do not collect them by the end of the first day, they will be passed
onto the next person on the waiting list.

Due to the recent GDPR Act, we will not be accepting any payment formats
other than in-person credit/debit card transactions in our Summer Office.

Yes, put the number you require in the relevant section on the form and
you will be allocated them accordingly.

 If I book tickets and they are not available, will I be charged for
them?

event?

No, we cannot issue any refunds, so please be sure you will attend an
event before you book.
