Actually, that should read "including Bayreuth". We should know - we've been to both. Anthony Negus and his dedicated team, repeatedly serve up magnificent performances in a perfect, intimate space. They are launching a new "Ring" in 2019.

We had seen a presentation by the owners. Drove through the grounds to see for ourselves. It was a Surprising place of classy entertainment way out in the rural area.

Loved this experience. Gorgeous grounds. Excellent service. Delicious buffet. Delightful opera. All in all a really pleasing evening. If you have the chance book the tickets, you will enjoy the whole occasion. Dress up, everyone else does.

Beautiful surroundings, operatic performance of high standard and a interval allowing the essential picnic. Black tie (although not mandatory) helps to make the experience extra special.

Tucked away near Moreton-in-Marsh, Longborough Festival Opera House is an absolute gem. Smaller than Glyndebourne, this mini-Bayreuth gives amazing operatic performances, specialising in Wagner. Mostly in black tie, the audience is able to enjoy a long interval for wicker basket picnics, Pimms and champagne or...More
