Welcome to our 2017 holidays.

Welcome to our 2017 holidays, which we hope you enjoy reading about.
We have put together an interesting and varied programme, starting with a New Year’s party at Gregynog in Wales. Also in January we have another first to the Valletta Baroque Festival, Malta.  Our “With Richard Wigmore” series starts with Bath Bachfest and will include Schubertiade en Bugey and Bonn Beethovenfest. We will be holding our own chamber music festivals again this year including our “flagship festival” Music in a French Village in Cucugnan, South of France, where we are honoured to have the Aronowitz Ensemble (Tom Poster, Magnus and Guy Johnston, Tom Hankey and others) and the wonderful South African Baritone Njabulo Madlala.
John, Helen or Richard will accompany the groups to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. We normally have some sightseeing with well chosen local guides but this varies according to where we are. Some holidays are quite busy, others are very relaxed and of course nothing on the schedule is compulsory! It is our policy to give guests plenty of free time. 
Although the holiday arrangements are made by us, we work in association with Specialised Travel Limited and are fully covered by its membership of ABTA and ATOL. 

We hope you will join us!

With best wishes,
    John, Helen and Richard Whibley, 
Catherine Hart and Jo Orme.
