Festival: Longborough Opera Festival

Biographie

June 5th - August 3rd2019

Longborough Festival Opera boasts an intimate 500-seat theatre, set amidst the glorious rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Every summer, the season features bespoke productions created especially for the Festival: talented designers, directors, conductors and the best up-and-coming artists coming together to bring you something you won't have seen anywhere else.

Founded by Martin and Lizzie Graham and located in the grounds of their home, a visit to the Festival ensures a unique experience. Nestled on a hillside and with splendid views over the tranquil Gloucestershire countryside, Longborough Festival Opera is a true hidden gem of the Cotswolds – and a ‘remarkable summer event’ (The Telegraph).

In June and July, be sure to take in the picturesque views, bring a picnic or treat yourself to a delicious three-course meal – and enjoy spectacular opera inside one of the UK’s finest country opera houses.

Intervals and dining

The 90-minute dining interval allows time to relax and enjoy the picturesque grounds: whether you reserve a place in one of the exclusive restaurants or bring your own picnic to enjoy.

What to wear

Black tie, formal dresses or a stylish garden party look: there is no specific dress code at Longborough, though many guests choose to wear black tie for the occasion.

Getting to Longborough (GL56 0QF)

The theatre is located on the outskirts of the village of Longborough in Gloucestershire, a few miles from Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Moreton-in-Marsh is on the Cotswold Line, and is served by direct trains from London Paddington (90 minutes), Worcester (50 minutes) and Hereford (90 minutes).

Visiting the Cotswolds

Longborough is situated in the stunning countryside of the Cotswolds, an area with a number of delightful market towns. Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water are all well worth a visit; and for a day trip, the larger towns of Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are within easy driving distance.
