Choir tour to Yorkshire – 31st May to 3rd June 2018:
Tour to York staying at The Parsonage Hotel Escrick and singing in Selby Abbey.
A coach would leave Thame at around 9.30, arriving in York early afternoon. We would then have 3 nights at The Parsonage Hotel, Escrick. The Parsonage is absolutely perfect for us. It’s a country house hotel with lovely grounds, a spa and a gym, and more importantly it’s close to the York Park & Ride and for those who like shopping(!), the Designer Outlet. There is also a bus service outside the hotel to the City of York. Please have a look at their website at http://www.parsonagehotel.co.uk.
Cost of the tour: until we have a better idea of numbers we can’t produce an accurate budget, but we’re pretty confident that the total cost for the weekend won’t exceed £340 per head. A deposit would be payable next term.
So if you would like to go to York and maybe bring a partner, spouse or friend, please can you let us know now. A list will be put out so that you an express your interest. If you miss seeing one of them let please contact Sandra Claridge directly to express your interest.
