Choral Britain

This tour combines time in each of the three countries that make up mainland Great Britain - England, Scotland and Wales. The itinerary shows six possible concert venues but many groups may choose to reduce this number by one or two. A highlight that we can normally arrange is a link up in the Cardiff area with a local Welsh choir. After all, Wales is "The Land of Song".
