TOURS

Since 2004 the Choir has visited Spain, Italy, Belgium Germany and France on two occasions to each of those countries, along with Canada Poland and Holland. Prior to this the Choir has visited America, Hungary, Ireland Germany and Brittany. During these tours, the Choir has participated in Charity concerts in most of the locations they have visited.

Whilst undertaking these tours, the choir has sung in some unusual locations including the Athabasca Glacier in Canada. On a barge berthed on a Canal in front of an audience of 2500 people and under the Channel on a Eurotunnel train. In 2011 during the tour to Poland the Choir sang at the wonderful St Kinga’s Chapel located 300 feet underground in Weiliczkas salt mine near Krakow.

One of the most poignant places the choir has been honoured to sing at, was the Menim Gate in Ypres Belgium, during our 2015 tour to Belgium and Germany.


The Menim Gate Memorial is dedicated to the British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in the Ypres Salient of World War One and whose graves are unknown
Another notable venue, where the Choir has had the privilege to sing in a concert was the Basilica of Ottobeuren Abbey in Bavaria.

The Basilica is regarded as one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Europe.
