Every other year Hot Aire! goes on tour for a week in the summer. In 2023 the tour will be to Ireland, based in the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny. In 2019 we visited Bavaria where we played concerts in Munich, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Uffing-am-Staffelsee (with the wonderful Musikkapelle Uffing). We also took a cable car ride up Mount Wank (yes, seriously), cruised Lake Staffelsee and visited the fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle.Previous tours have included The Netherlands, Belgium, Orkney, the Black Forest and the Isle of Wight.
Each trip includes concerts (of course) but also social activities and visits to places of interest. In the Netherlands we went to Madurodam, the cheese market at Gouda, for a canal boat trip in Amsterdam and held an ‘open mic’ evening. In Germany we hired boats on Lake Titisee and took a cable car trip near Freiburg. Activities in Belgium included a day in Bruges and a visit to a chocolate factory.
