Our Social Programme – pre-Christmas week (10th–15th December 2018)
It’s never too early to book for Christmas. Our 2017 programme was fully booked! Don’t miss your place.
For this week only we are offering you an exclusive add-on Christmas social programme for just GBP £99. Add it to any course!
Come and spend a week with us at Kingsway and enjoy three traditional English Christmas festive events.
1. Christmas Market
On Tuesday evening take a trip with a Kingsway guide to the wonderful Christmas Market in Birmingham. This has become a world-famous event on the Christmas calendar with market stalls from both UK and abroad. The lights and the buzz from the crowd at night is a spectacle not to miss.
2. Christmas Dinner
On Thursday evening school owners and directors Sue and Rick Johns invite you to a traditional Christmas dinner in their own home. Champagne and smoked salmon starters are followed by traditional Christmas turkey with all the vegetables. Traditional Christmas pudding, mince pies & coffee round off the evening. Plenty of wine or soft drinks available and included naturally!
3. Visit the Cotswolds
Saturday takes you on a trip to the beautiful Cotswolds. We can’t promise snow, but there will be visits to several lovely picture-postcard villages with local English shops where you can buy souvenirs or gifts for your friends and family back home.
