Concerts, Concerts, Concerts!
Traditional Concert Halls and Churches
The Island is blessed with some glorious churches with regular concert-going audiences. Traditional concert venues in the town of St.Helier can also be utilised, not forgetting our lovely concert hall at Chateau Vermont!
Unique Concert Venues
Alongside a more traditional concert, the tour could also include an exciting performance somewhere truly unique; a medieval castle, clifftop fort, or in the midst of the zoo to name but a few!
A lovely aspect to a tour is the opportunity to collaborate with local young musicians. This could mean sharing a concert with a school choir or ensemble, perhaps performing some combined items, or visiting a school to perform in an assembly.
Activities, Activities, Activities!
Fun and Exciting
Ranging from beach activities to indoor adventure parks, Jersey has a broad range of activities for all age ranges running right through the year.
Cultural and Educational
A range of fascinating sites to explore means that a music tour to Jersey can also include links to History, Geography, and French Language.
The tour can include Jersey-themed menus, evening storytelling of Jersey myths and legends, and an introduction to ‘Jerriais’ (the language unique to Jersey).
What People Say
I am writing on behalf of all the teachers in order to thank you for such a fabulous trip to Jersey. The itinerary was superb and perfect for us and there was not one weak link the whole way.Paula Bowman, Head of Music, St John’s Preparatory School (Potters Bar, Hertfordshire)

after by Jersey Academy of Music.
Just contact us and we can discuss the aims and outcomes of the tour with you and create a suggested itinerary accordingly. Essentially we look after the booking of every single element of the tour from the moment you will step foot on the island – all activities, transport, rehearsals, concerts, catering etc etc! All will be covered in the quote we draw together, and this quote can be continually ‘tweaked’ right up to three weeks prior to the tour (should your numbers go up or down, or itinerary adjusted). So this leaves just the transport to the island for you to arrange separately.
