LONDON FOREST CHOIR TOUR 2020: Letter #1

 

Date: 8th July 2019

 

Dear Friend

LONDON FOREST CHOIR TOUR 2020: NORMANDY, FRANCE: SATURDAY 23RD MAY – WEDNESDAY 27th MAY 2020

 

Good news - our next tour abroad is in prospect!  We are planning to go to France to stay in the Town of Saint-Lô.

I’ll be putting all tour-related information, including letters, payment dates, repertoire and rehearsal schedule, on the tour page on the website, so if you mislay these letters, you can always check there.

 

We will be staying in a 4* hotel in the town of Saint-Lô, as yet unconfirmed.

We are planning to travel by Coach. During our stay we will perform up to three concerts and will have these visits to look forward to: Day visit to Abbaye Mont-St-Michel , Tour and tasting at the Calvados Distillery and a Visit to the E. Graindorge Fromagerie. The cost also includes travel insurance up to the age of 85.

This will be a lovely and memorable trip, and well worth the money. For those of you who have only enjoyed the pleasures of inland tours so far, please do think about coming – and go for it!

Family and other non-singers are welcome, however at present there is limited accommodation. If numbers are greater I will need to try to book further rooms elsewhere.

 

The Price

We cannot yet give a firm cost, but we expect the cost of a 4-night 5-day tour, half board, per person sharing a twin room, to be around £560 in total. Single rooms are limited and there will be an additional cost, to be confirmed. This will include coach travel, half board accommodation and a share of the artists’ costs. A deposit of £100 will be due by 9th September 2019. We recognise that it is a significant amount of money, so we are once again offering staged payments to help you manage it. Remaining payment dates are provisionally planned for: the beginning of October (£150), November (£150) and December(£160). 

 

 

 

What to do next

To reserve your place, complete and return the attached form, together with a deposit of £100 per person. Make cheques payable to London Forest Choir Tours or pay by electronic transfer:

Payee: London Forest Choir Tours, sort code 20 52 74, a/c 60071838

 

If you pay electronically, please reference the payment with your name and email to let me know you have paid. I will need deposits and completed forms (together please) by Monday 9th September 2019, either handed to me at rehearsals, emailed to me or posted to me at the address at the top of the letter. This deposit will be refundable if for any reason we are unable to go ahead with booking the tour, but is not otherwise refundable. Please note that late payments by cheques will not be accepted.

 

As usual, details of the repertoire, rehearsal arrangements and the timetable for the tour will follow in due course. However, for your diaries, you may want to pencil in tour rehearsals on the three Thursday evenings prior to the date of departure, ie Thursdays 7th, 14th and 21st May 2020. These dates are not yet confirmed.

 

Meanwhile, if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me at rehearsals, or at the above address, e-mail or mobile.

 

I do hope you choose to come on what should be a fantastic trip.

 

With best wishes,

 

Janet
