Behind The Scenes (Trips Out)

Behind the Scenes visits places of interest around Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. In some cases visits include seeing what the public rarely get the chance to see, behind the scenes. From a Birds of Prey Sanctuary near Cullompton to the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth and from a Gin Distillers in Plymouth to the Royal Albert Museum in Exeter, Behind the Scenes ensures varied, and always interesting visits. If you have ideas for such a visit why not get in touch with one of the group leaders.

At least 6 trips throughout the year


NOTE: Behind the Scenes Programme 2023 - how it works

Due to the popularity of the group, our current membership stands at over 70, we've reluctantly closed the group to new members. This is because many of the venues we visit can only accommodate small groups of between 20-30 people, resulting in too many members not getting on the trips. Even though all places are allocated on a first come basis, we recognise it can be disappointing to miss out on an advertised trip.


Rather than create a 'waiting list' for Behind the Scenes, which would imply it's only a matter of time before people will be added, we've opened up a Reserve list. Anyone on this list will be given first opportunity to take spare places on any of our visits once they've been offered to group members.


Where the venue can take large groups, we are limited by coach size and manageable numbers of around 50. Several of our visits had spare places last year so if you would like to add your name to the Reserve list please email Gill.
