Cultural Activities

One of the things which makes Plus stand out from other social clubs is the diversity of its activities programme, nowhere is this more evident than in its extensive programme of both evening and weekend trips to various cultural attractions.

Recently Plus has visited venues as unusual and wide-ranging as Magna, Rotherham, Abbey House, Kirkstall, Leeds, The National Museum of Photography Film & Television, Bradford and Conisborough Castle, near Rotherham.

And it's far from being a case of visiting stuffy old buildings crammed to the rafters with obscure art. We've been to some of the newest attractions, and in amongst these events we've been treated to talks, performance art, and even live music. Our cultural events always provide a good opportunity to mix with regular and new members, and usually include the option for a meal or drinks.
