From bustling market squares and scenic bandstands to beautiful churches, we offer a range of superb venues and destinations that are tailored to orchestras. We know how important your instruments are, which is why we’ll recommend the most suitable way to transport and store them, with the alternative option of hiring them out.
We work with tourist boards, venues and online outlets to publicise your concerts on your behalf, as well as create and distribute eye-catching leaflets and posters to help gather you an audience.
We work closely with airlines and coaches, which means we’re able to outline their policies in the very early planning stages, so you know your much-loved instruments will be carefully transported.
