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. W128px-Selby_Abbey_03e 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

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.
