The Tour dates have been confirmed as 20th-28th August 2014 (Inclusive of travel)


The actual cost per person is £700 but due to the fundraising efforts of "Friends of Wigan Youth Brass Band" and "Wigan Jazz Club" a general subsidy has been provided for all travellers. A further subsidy is available for those families that need it the most.

The tariff will be:

Full Paying members - £595
Subsidised Rate - £475 (available to those applying for support)
Full Time University Student rate - £475 - those returning to the bands for the tour
Family rate - £400 per child - for two or more siblings

Please secure your child's place on the tour with a £100 deposit. Cheques made payable to Wigan Council. We request deposits reach us by Friday 4th October 2013.

With so many new players joining the bands this year, all eager to go on their first trip and with many of our 2013 leavers expressing a wish to return for the tour, we are anticipating high demand for the available places.
