NOTICE 2 - 2024 Summer Tour
Vigo Singers Tour 2024
Here is a summary of our plans:
Tour to Norwich Thursday 30th May to Sunday 2nd June.
Travelling by coach from Vigo Village (Roseway Coaches, as used for our trip to Chelsea in December 2023.) Time to be confirmed. Cost £70 return pp including possible tip. (The coach and driver will not be staying with us.) Most people have paid a deposit of £24 so this can be deducted.
Stopping on the way at Anglesey Abbey House and Gardens CB25 9EJ. This is a National Trust property, page 217 in the 2024 handbook. Free entry to members (so remember to take your membership card.)
Staying in the Premier Inn, Duke Street, Norwich NR3 3AP. This is centrally located in the city. Rooms are booked on a bed and breakfast basis. Cost £315 per room for the 3 nights. If you are sharing a room this cost is split between you i.e. £157.50 each.
Our programme is flexible but we have a concert booking at St Stephen’s church, Rampant Horse Street, NR2 1QP. The concert is at 6.30 on Saturday 1st June. It is a short walk (about 12 minutes) from our hotel. At present we are lacking a choir to join us so it may be just us! And we do need to think about pre tour publicity at a distance. Ideas welcome.
On Friday evening we plan to book a meal at Bella Italia restaurant, also very close to the church.
Other plans include exploring the city on foot – castle, cathedral(s), market, and possibly an informal lunchtime recital although we are still investigating venues for that. Go to www.visitnorwich.co.uk to find out more about “the city of stories.”
We return home on Sunday, departure time to be advised. (Hotel check out time 12 noon.) We shall stop on the way back at Audley End House and Gardens, CB11 4JF. This is an English Heritage property, page 138 in that handbook. Free entry to members.
Arrive back in Vigo early evening, exact time to be confirmed.
Full payment should be made to the Vigo Singers account by 1st April 2024 as both the hotel and the coach company require payment in advance. This is Easter Bank holiday Monday.
Please do not pay cash. BACS is much easier for our overworked treasurer.

Please, please DO NOT MAKE ANY TOUR PAYMENTS UNTIL AFTER OUR SPRING CONCERT (16TH MARCH) as it makes things even more complicated for our treasurer with ticket money coming in.
