Kingston has a varied and quite comprehensive events calendar throughout the year, but when it comes to the months that lead up to Christmas things start to pick up pace a little. In this blog we look at some of the best events between now and 2019 and see what is coming up.
If you want to go to any of the events we cover in this blog, the easiest way to do it is by a local Kingston private hire minicab. Elite Car Service will be delighted to assist you, and take you and your family to the event and back home after. And for our first event you had better pre-book your Kingston taxi cab as it looks a pretty boozy do!
On the 11th of October and if you like beer, then head down to 7000 Jars of Beer in Kingston town centre for a beer tasting treat. A whole array of quality Belgium beers will be ready and waiting to be tasted, everything from Trappist Quadrupels to pilsners.
There will be commentary on how the beers are produced and how best to taste them. 7000 Jars of Beers is an independent, family owned shop selling small batch brews and interesting gins.
From the 23rd October to the 28th of October, why not take your kids down to the Rose Theatre in Kingston to see the Gruffalo’s Child tour.
The tour takes place after the massive success of the show in the West End, the story takes place on a wild and windy night, and spurning her father’s warnings the little Gruffalo Child steps out into a snowy wilderness. Does the Big Bad Mouse really exist?
This performance is a musical version of the award winning story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and is suitable for kids and parents of all ages.
Another quality production is taking place at the Rose Theatre between 6th November and 17th of November. The romantic drama Don Carlos by Friedrich Schiller comes to Kingston with an all star cast including Tom Burke.
The story is about power and passion set against a disturbing backdrop of the ruthless and bloody Spanish Inquisition. The play was actually written before the French Revolution, and echo’s many Shakespearean themes in its plot.
Tom Burke is instantly recognisable from his part of Athos in the highly successful BBC adaptation of The Musketeers.
The Rose Theatre will be presenting Hansel & Gretel as their Christmas Show this year, from the 6th of December to the 6th of January.
The story follows the adventures of brother and sister in the little peaceful town of Freiburg. The town flourishes even though there is famine everywhere else. Their endeavours to do good takes them to a mysterious Gingerbread House and their adventures start here.
These are just some of the events that are occuring between now and the New Year, so if you want a great family day out in Kingston without any transport hassles, then contact Elite Car Service and we will be happy to send one of private cabs to get you to the event.
