Ashford Sings! on tour to the Netherlands

Event Details

14th April 2023

6:00am - 9:00pm

Every year Ashford Sings! goes on tour: next April we're off to visit Holland again (cancelled from 2020) and you'd be very welcome to join us. If you're new to the choir it's a great way to get to know people. The tour team have been busy planning and we visited the area to find singing locations and inspect the hotel facilities. We will be leaving very early on Friday 14th April from Furley Park School in two coaches, travelling through the tunnel, and stopping en route for a gig at Weert. We should arrive at our hotel, the 4* Best Western Nobis at Asten, by around 6pm. It's a beautiful hotel with a gym and swimming pool. That evening we will be having a buffet dinner which is included. If you have dietary needs these can be catered for. We will be spending all day Saturday at 's-Hertogenbosch (usually abbreviated to Den Bosch). We are working on a programme of activities there, liaising with the local cultural centre and town hall, and there will be lots of fun things to do. We'll then be singing in the afternoon and then we'll be back to the hotel in the evening for a 'Choiroke' party - always a great evening! On Sunday we'll be leaving the hotel and travelling to Maastricht for a gig and free time before heading back to the tunnel. The price for the weekend we hope to keep at around £240 each (+£65 for a single room). Assisted places are available so don't let lack of funds cause you to miss out (have a word with Nic or Chris). It really is super fun! If you want to be part of this wonderful experience then a £50 deposit will guarantee your place. Bank transfers are to the Ashford Sings! Tour account (23-05-80 33029357 Ref: Your surname Tour) at Metro Bank, or you can pay in instalments at the front desk in the break on Sunday evenings by cheque or cash. We need to have all payments in by the end of February so we can pay deposits etc for the coaches/tunnel and hotel. Please let me know when you pay bank transfers by emailing me at so I can update the spreadsheet. Booking forms are available at choir or I can email one to you.
