SCHOOL MUSIC TOURS
We know that teachers need to make sure various learning objectives are met when organising a residential trip. We will always work with you to ensure the trip is the right fit for your school. In addition to holding a Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge, ACFEA are also an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum (STF). We fully understand therefore what is required for educational travel. Furthermore, we have effective Safety Management Systems in place, specifically designed for travelling with young students.
CHORAL SOCIETY TOURS
We understand that your tour is as much a holiday for your members as it is a concert tour. We have been planning tours for adult ensembles for many decades, and we will help you achieve the right balance between exceptional concert experiences and a wonderful sociable trip. For instance, for our more ambitious choirs we can arrange performances with professional local orchestras – a concept we pioneered. Speak to our planning team to find out more.
OUTREACH & EXCHANGE
Creating long lasting memories for your group is a must. A tour featuring outreach & exchange opportunities not only makes a difference to the lives of those you interact with, but to the lives of your tour members too. Our recent projects have included workshops in the slums of Mumbai, a recording project with refugees in Germany and joint performances in the Pavarotti centre in Mostar. Even a single joint concert can provide an unmissable opportunity to craft new ensemble and relationship building skills. Contact our planning team to discover what opportunities might be right for your group.
From the world -famous Montreux festival, to a gig in Le Caveau de la Huchette in Paris, our concert representatives are here to find you the perfect gig. Furthermore, if you are looking for a band tour, we also have a number of outdoor summer opportunities in destinations such as Normandy and Belgium.

In addition, we can also suggest destinations which are accessible entirely by rail. Your tour can start from any National Rail station in Great Britain.
