Avon & Somerset: Cities and Heritage

Industrial Bristol, elegant Bath and England’s smallest city, Wells; three very different cities, one perfect tour steeped in heritage, history and beauty.

Avon and Somerset boast some truly amazing (and sometimes unexpected) performance venues. From one of England’s greatest Cathedrals in its smallest city, Wells, to a theatre in a former tobacco factory in the cultural heart of Bristol, we have access to some real gems! If you’re looking for memorable performances against impressive backdrops, it doesn’t get much better than Bath with its famous Royal Crescent, a splendid sweep of 30 Georgian houses featured as a backdrop in countless films and TV dramas, the magnificent Bath Abbey and one of the finest spas of the ancient world, The Roman Baths.

Steeped in myth and ancient heritage, why not delve deeper into the county of Somerset? Walk in the footsteps of our Neolithic ancestors at Stonehenge – one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe or visit the legendary King Arthur’s burial place at Glastonbury Abbey, a historic town also famous for a world-famous music and arts festival, which is legendary in itself.

Jo and her team came up with a fantastic itinerary for our choir and planned everything to the last detail. We always felt we were in safe hands and that they were on the end of a phone to help us with anything we needed. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

As a Chorister, and eventually Head Chorister in our local church choir for eleven years, Jo was talented, dedicated and could always be relied on to work to the utmost of her undoubted abilities. I would expect that she would apply the same attributes to her professional life
P BuckmasterChoral Director
From cathedrals and abbeys, churches and stately homes, all steeped in centuries of history, some in Roman Towns others in quintessential English ‘picture postcard’ villages, every choir and musical ensemble should spend a tour exploring the United Kingdom and Ireland. Whatever part of the country you to choose to visit, by working with a knowledgeable team of people who know the regions inside out from both a tourism and musical perspective, you will be guaranteed the richest of touring experiences
