Northumbria – Castles & Coastline

With more castles than any other county in England, Northumberland is steeped in history and medieval magnificence.

Towering above the sea, Bamburgh Castle looks every inch the mighty citadel it once was with views of the Farne Islands and more famously, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Head inland to Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and more recently to the ‘Hogwarts’ residents in the Harry Potter movies.

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

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
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.
