Exciting school music tour to cultural Barcelona and the sunny Costa Brava!

The Costa Brava has retained its authentic Spanish character and its location, with Barcelona at the southern tip, means the city sights are just a short journey away. Visit the famous Sagrada Familia, enjoy a fun-filled day at a local water park and, most importantly, enjoy performing in exciting and memorable venues,such as Barcelona Cathedral and the Montserrat Monastery!

After working in the Travel Industry for over 30 years I have had the great fortune to work in many destinations and visit some amazing places. Travel is not just an experience – it is memories & knowledge. I love having the opportunity to create those memories for our groups. – Sarah Newman Music Tours Operations Manager

Don't take our word for it …

On the whole, we were pleased with Halsbury. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Our Tour Rep Alan was brilliant - really thorough, friendly and eager to help. Couldn't fault him. Simone really came up trumps with the Luxembourg gig. We had a fantastic concert at Luxembourg Place d'Armes which was his suggestion. Big thumbs up! The church in Aachen where we performed was also amazing. It was very close to the markets in Aachen and had beautiful acoustics. — The Castle School , January 2019
