An evening out with Hot Aire!

We have an active social programme which includes band dinners, especially the annual awards dinner each February, and other activities such as bowling, spa days and outings. The band particularly enjoys going to shows at local theatres; recent trips have included Wicked, The Lion King, Hairspray and Chicago. Any ideas for social activities always welcome – we like to give anything a go!

For more information about social events please talk to Rebekah or Linda. Alternatively, contact us by email.

Out and about


Every year the band also goes ‘on tour’. We alternate between week-long tours, usually abroad, and long weekends in the UK for sectional rehearsals and social activities. Band trips and weekends are open and accessible to all – family and friends always welcome. In recent years the band has been to The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Orkney and the Isle of Wight. In 2019 Hot Aire! went to Bavaria. In 2020, following the sad closure of the much-loved Sneaton Castle, the long weekend (28-31 August) will be at Cober Hill near Scarborough.
