The Cotswolds

From idyllic villages to magnificent cathedrals, we’ll take you on a musical journey to the heart of the Cotswolds.

Both Holst and Vaughan Williams were born here and took inspiration from the celebrated landscape of rolling hills. Start your journey in Cheltenham where Holst’s birthplace is now a fascinating museum before you discover the idyllic villages for which the Cotswolds is so famous. With venues ranging from Gloucester Cathedral to the glorious surroundings of Cogges Manor Farm, which you may recognise from Downton Abbey, you’ll be spoiled for choice whatever your musical programme.

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
Tim KnightBritish composer and Choral Director
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.
