We return to Yorkshire to see the legendary Joe Loss Orchestra! Since 1930 the band has been in constant operation, has never disbanded or reformed. As well as your evening of Big Band music, you will see some lovely parts of Yorkshire, visit the city of York and see how the other half lived as we explore Harewood House. A weekend not to be missed!
Day 1 We pick you up from home in a taxi, and once on board our coach, we make our way northwards to Yorkshire, having suitable refreshment stops along the way and arriving late afternoon. We have a welcome drink before dinner, which is followed by a relaxing evening with light entertainment.
Day 2 Today we visit Harewood House, one of the Treasure Houses of England. This remarkable property boasts an impressive art collection, furniture by Thomas Chippendale, and over 100 acres of award-winning gardens. We return to our hotel to get ready for an aperitif, our Gala Dinner and tonight’s extravaganza – the highlight of the weekend – an evening with the legendary Joe Loss Orchestra, now led by Todd Miller. 2020 is the band’s 90th year and it is the longest running entertainment company of its kind. The Big Band and singers will perform hits from the 50s to the 80s.
Day 3 Our day in York begins with a guided walking tour of the historic centre and the afternoon is free for your own exploration. You might like to take a closer look at magniﬁcent York Minster, visit the National Railway Museum, discover our Viking heritage at the Jorvik Centre or just stroll through the famous shambles. We return to our hotel for our evening meal and last night of entertainment.
Day 4 Leaving after breakfast, we travel south and make several comfort stops before reaching the local area late afternoon, to be met by our taxis.
