Tours Abroad

Tours abroad

Our choir enjoys performing in concerts abroad. It is not compulsory for members to join these tours, but everyone is encouraged to do so. In recent years we have travelled to France, Italy, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Belgium and Spain. We have also enjoyed an exchange trip with a choir in Denmark.

The focus of any tour is of course the concerts and our tours have allowed us to sing at some of Europe's most amazing venues. There is also, of course, the enjoyment of simply being in a different European location and being able to sample the local food and drink and also to visit some of the landmarks of the region.

OUR TOUR TO REIMS      

April 11th to April 14th, 2014.

  

On April 11th at an early hour 34 of us, singers and friends and relations, departed from Coulsdon by coach for our weekend in France.  We arrived in Reims at approximately 5.30 pm, where we were to spend the weekend at the Ibis hotel.

 

Reims is a charming medieval city of immense historic importance, with its beautiful cathedral and many lovely parks and gardens.  It was a stronghold of resistance during the First World War and it was also here that the act of full surrender was signed on the 7th May, 1945, which marked the end of the Second World War in Europe.  We were lucky enough to have the Saturday morning free in which to explore the city.
