Lancashire-based School Trip Firm Gives Top Billing to Jodie Prenger’s Oliver!

Leading school trip company, NST, based in Jodie Prenger’s home town of Blackpool, is offering a special deal for school children across Lancashire to watch the popular BBC “I’d do Anything” winner star in “Oliver!” in the West End from February next year. 

As the UK’s leading educational travel company, NST is offering a special two day Oliver! excursion, which includes executive coach travel, meals and overnight accommodation in London.  School children from Lancashire will benefit from an additional £10 discount per child.

Jodie (28) from Newton Drive, Blackpool will perform as Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh’s multi-million pound revival of the popular musical.  NST, based on Whitehills Business Park in the town is the market leader in residential, out-of-classroom educational visits.

Says NST spokesperson, Deborah Beckett: “Our curriculum linked visits are designed to enhance teachers' classroom based learning and develop children's cultural interests.  Talent search programmes have gone a long way to making live theatre and musicals fashionable again.  Many children have been inspired by Jodie’s personality and determination to win; it is great that we can help them to combine this interest with an experience of West End theatre.”

Last year, NST carried 172,000 students and education staff from the UK on more than 4,000 trips to destinations in the UK, Europe and to long haul destinations such as China and India.
