Bangor is a small coastal city in North Wales, and although it does not have an abundance of attractions, it is a picturesque place offering views over the Menai Strait and also serves as a convenient base for visiting the nearby Snowdonia National Park. Bangor hosts regular classical music concerts which are mainly held in the Powis and Prichard-Jones Halls at the University of Bangor. The concerts form part of the University's concert series. Bangor University was founded in 1884. In addition Bangor cam also claim to be the home of the Gwynedd Museum and Art Gallery and a new arts centre in the city is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2014.

Located in the county of Wiltshire in the south of England, the city of Salisbury is the only city in Wiltshire and has at its centre a 13th century cathedral. Old Serum is the site of the original city and is located on a hilltop just to the north of the present day city. The site shows evidence of habitation from around 3,000 BC to 1219 when the bishop relocated the cathedral to its present location. Most of the site is free to enter although there is a charge for the Inner Bailey.
Music plays an important part in the city's history especially during the 18th century when James Harris, a friend of George Frideric Handel, directed concerts at the Assembly Rooms for almost fifty years until his death in 1780. Art also has an important role in Salisbury's history. John Constable made a number of landscape paintings featuring the cathedral's spire and surrounding countryside. The city retains a strong artistic community. The city holds an annual arts festival, the International Arts Festival, which began in 1973 and is held in late May to early June. The festival contains a programme of live music, dance, sculpture and art exhibitions.
