Singing holidays – some of the best in the U.K

We are one of the most experienced Singing holiday operators in the UK and have been organising Natural Voice group holidays since 2003. This year, by popular demand, we are introducing Choral Singing holidays and Show Songs singing holidays to our repertoire. We welcome single travellers, couples and groups of friends to come together and create our very own holiday choir.

Our singing holidays are uplifting, rejuvenating, joyful and sociable. Singing together in groups can often be magical and a lovely way of making new friends. Whether you’ve only sung in the bath, or are a regular member of a choir, our inspirational tutors will create a supportive and relaxed environment in which to sing, learn, and have fun. 

We create a supportive and relaxed environment in which to learn, whilst discovering beautiful locations – it is a holiday after all! In addition to the singing aspect, our holidays always include cultural visits or walks.


Choral singing holidays

Choral singing holidays are also new this year, and we are privileged to have this exciting adventure led by the renowned and hugely experienced conductor Adrian Partington. Adrian will be leading our group of choral singers to the city of Malaga in Spring 2016 for four fabulous days singing Mozart’s Requiem and Coronation Mass. Thanks to our tour manager, Simon Harding, a resident of Malaga, we will be singing in the unique Anglican church. We finish the week with a recital.

We welcome choral singers with some experience and music-reading ability. While still a holiday, this is a comparatively intense singing experience. We provide full scores for the duration of the holiday and a fulltime pianist and organist. Also included is a guided tour of the famous Picasso museum. This holiday requires a minimum of 40 participants.

Show Songs singing holidays

New for 2016 – Helen Sims will be leading a fabulous week in Gascony, France, singing Show Songs, light opera and classic pop tunes. Based in the pretty hilltop town of Lectoure, singers will enjoy learning from a repertoire that includes Les Miserables, The Lion King and Lennon and McCartney. We will develop our harmonies as a group while having fun. 

We sing for five half days, take you to beautiful towns and markets and arrange wine tastings and delicious dining. We welcome all who enjoy singing and learning in a relaxed atmosphere. All music scores will be provided for the duration, and while there is no need to read music, some optional music theory will be included for anyone with an interest. An uplifting and inclusive singing experience. There will be a full-time accompanist on this holiday. Our maximum group size is 25, but holidays often run on smaller numbers.

Acapella singing holidays

The remarkable Faith Watson has been leading Acapella singing holidays for us since 2003, and it is largely thanks to her commitment, passion and teaching skills that our holidays have grown so rapidly in popularity. This year we have recruited two new tutors – Liz Martin and Guy Wilson. Both have wide experience of singing professionally and of leading choirs. 

We always travel to diverse locations and always try to include a music festival or joining a local choir – this year our Natural Voice holidays will visit Spain, Gozo, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Sri Lanka. We welcome everyone who loves to sing! All the songs are taught by ear, so there is no need to be able to read music or be part of a choir. There is always a friendly and supportive environment where every voice is heard. Our maximum group size is 25, but holidays often run on smaller numbers.

Our hotels & locations are special
The hotels we stay in are always of a good standard, comfortable with good service. We try to support local establishments, and many have become friends of ours.
We sing in churches, old palaces, by waterfalls, on mountain tops, in olive groves, on the beach, by the lake. We take you to places you hope to go, and places you'd never find on your own. That's the magic of our holidays.
If you have a partner who doesn't wish to sing, they are very welcome to explore the location on their own and we will offer them a discount. See individual holiday web pages for details.
Culinary experiences are an integral part of any holiday! We take our picnics very seriously. Our local assistants prepare tasty picnics from the best local ingredients. We never miss the opportunity for a wine, cheese or olive oil tasting! We choose our restaurants with care, supporting family run, authentic places where the food is delicious.
This holiday was as near perfect a holiday as I've ever had.
