Following the success of our first “Mendelssohn in Scotland” holiday in September 2015 and several UK tours in the following years, Travel for the Arts is pleased to continue our collaboration with Stephen Carpenter and his new enterprise “Carpenter Holidays”. Stephen has planned and will be leading further holidays, details of which will be found in our Escorted Tours section, and at These holidays will be arranged by Carpenter Holidays in association with Travel for the Arts and will be fully covered by our ABTA and ATOL membership.
