Birmingham Festival Choral Society regularly tours abroad. Past tours have visited Bulgaria, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium & Holland, Slovenia, Estonia, Slovakia, Ireland, France and Romania. Tours are a great way of bringing the choir together, through new friendships, and shared choral experiences in beautiful places.

Our 2023 tour took us to the beautiful Rhineland area of Germany, giving concerts in Mainz, Koblenz and Bingen. Click to read our blog from the Rhineland tour.
