Who are Theatrical Adventures?


They are exactly the same people who organise the G&S Festival and run the National G&S Opera Company. In a former life Ian, Janet & Neil Smith were all heavily involved in the travel industry organising massive conferences around the world. When G&S enthusiasts suggested they organise a cruise up the Nile some seven years ago, they jumped at the opportunity and went on to establish a company which specialises in Operetta cruises up the rivers of Europe and beyond. Any surpluses from the cruises are ploughed back into the Festival.

Theatrical Adventures also run events closer to home. They provide bespoke Accommodation Packages to the Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in both Buxton and Harrogate and the New Year Gala Concert in Harrogate each January. They host the International G&S Weekend in May, which took place in Grange-over-sands in May.

There is something every season with Theatrical Adventures and we hope to see you somewhere on the way!

What do our customers say?

We received rave reviews on our last European adventure down the Danube onboard the MS Ariana, sister ship to the MS Elegant Lady. As you can see, we promise great comfort, spectacular entertainment, and fantastic food.

We recently sailed down the river Rhine on a trip complete with a full orchestra in a world first. As you will see from the comments below, it was rated a huge success and we will repeat it next March on the Danube.

If you like river cruising you will love Theatrical Adventures. We are very proud of our “no single-supplement” policy.
