As 2020 draws to a close, it’s been a year unlike anything else we have experienced in 20 years of running OneStage. The Travel Industry has been severely affected by the pandemic and instead of planning concerts and sending excited musicians across Europe, it’s been a time of postponements, cancellations and negotiations.
From 1st January 2021, the UK will leave the EU and this will affect some elements of travel, including passport validity, driving in Europe and Travel Insurance. You can keep up-to-date with these and other changes via the FCDO website https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
OneStage are in touch with ABTA, the School Travel Forum (STF) and Music Associations to support campaigns such as #SaveOurSchoolTrips and #CanDoMusic. Please use these hashtags where possible to shout out that music and travel are too important to ignore.
OneStage is committed to keep running so that when your ensembles are ready to tour again, we can work together to plan Music Tours.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a more hopeful and prosperous New Year 2021.
Best wishes from Pippy & Sonia
