Leaving the local area this morning, we'll travel to our hotel. Arriving in the early to mid-afternoon, you'll have time to check in and freshen up before the coach transfers you to the LG Arena, NEC Birmingham for the highlight of your break - a fantastic concert by Alfie Boe. Sing along to the star performer's best-loved hits from his albums, 'Storyteller', 'Bring Him Home' and 'Alfie', and fall under the spell of new material from his latest studio album, 'Trust'. The talented tenor's intimate live shows are always packed with warmth and cheeky humour - as well as heartfelt lyrics - so this promises to be an enchanting night of musical entertainment. After the show, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
After breakfast we'll check out of our hotel and begin our journey home. We'll stop en route for a few hours at the Birmingham Christmas Market, a German-style market packed with festive offerings - music, dance, wooden toys, German beers and sausages, marzipan and mulled wine. We'll continue our journey in the mid-afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.
Your show/event ticket(s) will be given to you by your Newmarket Tour Manager on the day.
