Randolph Caldecott Societies' Brittany Tour,
30 March 2004, we greatly regret that this Tour has had to be CANCELLED as not
enough people signed up to it to make its price viable.
For the 21st Anniversary of the Randolph Caldecott Societies (UK and USA), we
had planned a joint Tour of the places in Brittany (Bretagne), France, which Randolph visited to
illustrate his book "Breton Folk".
The Tour would have started from England, and travel by coach
Brittany. The coach was to collect us from (and return us to) Crewe, Reading
or Portsmouth. (Members of the Tour arriving by air should aim to
arrive at London Heathrow, from where it is easy to get to Reading.) We
were to stay in 2 different places, travelling by coach (not by horse & trap as
Randolph would have done!) each day to see many of the places which Randolph saw
|2 nights at Hotel l'Abbaye (formerly an Abbey), Plancoet, near St. Malo;|
|5 nights at Hotel Mercure, Quimper.|
Duration: 9 days (including overnight on boat each way).
Price: GB£ 599 (US$930), including:
Board"* accommodation in twin bedded rooms|
(*: "Half Board" means Bed, Breakfast and
Evening Meal but not lunch),
| coach travel to, from and in France, |
|sea crossings Portsmouth/St Malo with cabin accommodation,|
Single rooms/cabins, subject to availability, GB£ 190 (US$ 300) extra.
Date: Autumn 2004.
You didn't have to be a paid-up member to join the Tour (but of course we'd
like you to join).
