To use its common title, ‘The BRITS’ has always had wider appeal with a generous helping of apres and music. Featuring this year, the much talked about Famous First Words takes its sell-out show overseas, and be sure to pack your maracas for Mexican Night. Taking it into the small hours and playing live are dance act Flirtini who have graced Coachella Festival and hip-hop duo Rasmentalism.

Weeklong holiday packages are still available and cater for all budgets, while Swiss International Air Lines fly from all over the UK, offering competitive rates that include FREE ski/snowboard carriage. Transfer options from multiple airports include the ever-efficient Swiss Travel Ticket which from Zurich takes you by train around the beautiful lakes.
