School Band Tours

Looking for an incredible music experience for your school band?

Being part of a school band is a formative experience for many young people. It's more than just performing. It teaches skills of working together, self expression and confidence-building. It builds character and memories.

As leaders in organising school band tours, we recognise this and look to create lifelong experiences for students (and teachers!). We operate school band tours in multiple European destinations. Many venues are hand-picked for schools and perfectly suited to the needs of school bands.

Organising school band tours since the 1980s

At Gower Music Tours we pride ourselves on creating bespoke school band tours. School bands typically comprise of students from a range of ages and we are adept at helping select destinations for every type of youth and school band group.

We have operated school band tours since the early 1980’s and are one of the most experienced schools band travel operators in the UK. We have built up an extensive network of suppliers across Europe. This includes a range of accommodation options to suit each group, transport providers with high quality equipment, but most importantly reliable and compelling band performance venues.

Memorable venues for school band tours

We have extensive knowledge of operating school band tours in Europe. Logistics are particularly important for band tours. The choice of transport, the selection of venues and accommodation all have to factor in the bulky equipment and instruments bands require. We can help you select venues and locations that are best suited - and more importantly avoid the less suitable to the needs of a big band.

Organisational needs aside, we want your school band to perform in amazing venues where the students create lasting memories. Over the years we have  worked hard to organise the venues where school bands can flourish. We're always happy to give advice and ideas to meet the needs and budget of your school trip.

"I would recommend Gower to any group planning a music tour abroad. A small and very caring company, you are made to feel very much part of the planning. They will do everything to accommodate your wishes for excursions and concerts. I have worked with Gower every year since 2000, therefore combining on 19 European tours. Each one has been a success due to their attention to detail and willingness to communicate fully at all times via phone or email. We have also had a number of visits to the school over the years to discuss tours and therefore be able to really know who we are dealing with. The boss of the company actually acted as our van driver one year to transport our instruments. Overall an excellent company and many thanks in particular to Sonia, Anita and Eleanor!"
