With 3 very successful cruises under our belt, we are having a change this year and will be visiting Riga with our expert tour guide – Andris! This will be a 4-night trip, flying from Manchester Airport. The dates are confirmed as 19-23 May 2020.  Sound good? Unfortunately, this trip is now fully-booked.  Disappointed?  Well, a few of us are going, independently of the choir, on a cruise on Thursday 9 April 2020.  This is a 5-night Tulips and Chocolate cruise out of Southampton visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp (there is a trip to the Keukenhof gardens available). As ever, you are all very welcome to come along.  Use GRP0209 as group code or ring Terry for further details.

In 2017 we travelled to the Norwegian Fjords and 2018 saw us in the Scottish Highlands. Our Secretary, Sally Whittingham, always writes a report on our holiday, which is published in the National Choir Association magazine as well as in Fred Olsen’s advertising!  Click on the dates to read about our first cruise 2017, for the Scottish trip 2018 or for the French cruise 2019.


Our 4th cruise with Fred.Olsen is now confirmed as Sailing Round Iconic Ireland.  Seven nights aboard Black Watch out of Liverpool on Saturday 22 May 2021.  There is a 12½% discount on brochure prices (plus  additional 5% for Ocean Members), £30 on-board spending and a free Group Drinks Party.  Plus 2 Fairburn Singers’ concerts on-board!  Who could ask for anything more – come and join us.  Further details from Terry on 07821603221.  As ever, you are all very welcome to come along.

Anyone booking other cruises individually with Fred Olsen, can ask for that cruise to be linked to the Fairburn Singers’ account.  This will not entitle you to any further discounts – sorry! – but will aggregate our Friends and Family spending and help the choir when negotiating future discounts and also sponsorship.  Please quote our Group Code which is GRP0209.
