National Holidays has announced an expansion of its Showtime & Special Events (SSE) programme which features an extensive selection of two- and three-day breaks, combining reserved coach travel and accommodation on a dinner, B&B basis. In addition, excursions and ticket admission are included in the package.
The breaks on offer include trips to see acts such as Jennifer Lopez, Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, Cheryl Cole, Justin Bieber and Madness as well as top comedians John Bishop, Michael McIntyre and Harry Hill.
Customers can also see some of the top West End musicals in London as well as touring productions in regional theatres across the UK. Live theatre shows currently on sale include The Lion King and Phantom of the Opera.
Shearings-owned National Holidays will also be running theatre breaks to see the new ‘Viva Forever’, the critically acclaimed and multi- Olivier Award winning ‘Matilda’ – The Musical, the new production of The Full Monty, as well as the renowned Dirty Dancing and Oliver.
Meanwhile the Special Events programme includes the Birmingham International Tattoo, the Horse of the Year Show, The Good Food Show, Chelsea Flower Show and Top Gear Live! along with the Floriade Spectacular in Europe! Last year over 40,000 passengers travelled with National Holidays on a Showtime & Special Event break.
Martin Lock, Commercial Director at National Holidays, said: “After a superb reaction from our customers last year we’re expanding the SSE programme and launching new breaks. The range has proved to be extremely popular with customers of all age groups who want to see some of the best live artists and theatre shows but don’t want the stress of arranging it themselves.”
