1940s Last Night of the Proms & Arboretum

1940s Last Night of the Proms & Arboretum

Enjoy a 2 day break celebrating the 1940's with the Grand Orchestral concert bsounds of the war years and a visit to the National Memorial Arboretum with over 350 Memorials.


We will arrive in time to settle in to the De Vere Orchard Hotel before enjoying an evening  Grand Orchestral concert with sounds from the war years (The Dam Busters, 633 Squadron, We'll meet again) along with a 3 course gala dinner and coffee.



After a leisurely breakfast we will take you to the National Memeorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to see the Remembrance tributes.  There are over 350 memorials each one different but all rich in symbolism, making this a thought provoking experience.

We'll take a ride on the Land Train across the 150 acre site to let you get a better view of many of these memorials, including the Shot at Dawn Memorial and the RAF Remembrance Garden.

The moving commentary will give explanations of what you see.


After a great day out we will board the coach for our journey home with comfort stops along the way.
