Recently we joined the Theatre Express as 3 Northern Ireland businesses get together to offer an amazing night out in Belfast.
The Europa Hotel, Grand Opera House and Translink have teamed up to bring this super Autumn deal to all theatre fans.
We joined the 3 businesses as they launched the package in the Europa Hotel.
It all started with the Translink train journey into Great Victoria Street station. The package includes rail travel from anywhere in NI or Dublin.
On arrival into Great Victoria Street station, it’s all very easy as right next door we checked in to the Europa Hotel and headed up to our Superior Room, yes that’s also included in the package. Sounds good doesn’t it?
As an extra treat we enjoyed a pre-theatre meal in the Causerie Restaurant at the hotel. At £16 each for a 2 course meal with tea/coffee, it’s a great meal deal, and with locally sourced food and lots of it, we definitely recommend it as a great addition to the theatre express package.
Right next door again, and it was into the Opera House for Evita ( review by Anne Hailes here) for a night of musical theatre. Evita runs until 14th September but the deal doesn’t end there, the Theatre Express package includes Cats (4-16 Nov) and the Christmas panto, Sleeping Beauty (30 Nov- 19 Jan).
And with prices starting at £80 per person you can’t deny this is a cracker of a deal.
We haven’t stayed in the Europa in years and can definitely say it’s looking better than ever, particularly the lobby and the restaurant. We love the provenance of the food, particularly at breakfast with everything labelled where it’s from and even a few suggestions like porridge with a drop of whiskey! And with you travelling by train…why not try it..and don’t forget about the Guinness wheaten bread!
It’s a great package with the ease of a train journey, a great hotel and a great theatre, so go on, treat yourself to a really special theatre break in Belfast, you won’t regret it!
