Special Feature

Once considered elitist and not something particularly for the groups market, these days taking a group to
the ballet, opera or an orchestral performance, now figures prominently on the radar of group travel
organisers. With special group rates, behind the scenes tours and even free tickets for the group’s leader,
Hugh Cairns reports on some of those companies keen to welcome you and your group.
