The rules for travel to most countries in Europe change if the UK leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal. After 29 March 2019, all passports should have at least 6 months left from your date of arrival. This applies to adult and child passports. If you renewed a passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your new passport’s expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months that should be remaining for travel to most countries in Europe. Please check carefully.
Lincolnshire Music Service is part of Lincolnshire County Council and provides music opportunities for children and young people throughout Lincolnshire. We will only share your data when it is necessary to do so and will not share your information without your consent unless the law requires or allows the council to do so. Our full policy is available here.
