An afternoon with the
English National Ballet

2.30pm matinee at The London Coliseum, Covent Garden


EARLYBIRD PRICE until 15 August

A real Christmas Treat for all Solent Events clients and friends this December 2018 – PLUS time to spend in a festive Covent Garden!

The English National Ballet’s magical production of NUTCRACKER returns to the London Coliseum, Covent Garden this December for three weeks only. We have been lucky enough to book wonderful centre stalls seats in rows E, F, G,H, & J for the most fantastic views.

Over 100 dancers and musicians bring NUTCRACKER to life with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s popular score played live.

On a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara and her enchanted Nutcracker doll discover a magical world, where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger. As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where her adventure really begins.

From the sound of the orchestra tuning up to the final bows and cheers, a trip to English National Ballet  is an unforgettable Christmas treat, but to experience the ballet in the London Coliseum (also known as the Coliseum Theatre) is the icing on the cake. The theatre is situated in St Martin’s Lane, just off Trafalgar Square and was built as one of  London’s largest and most luxurious theatres.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.

Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.

Linda Hunt

Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery Tour
