About the performance

Join us this winter for the perfect festive treat.

The Christmas concert will showcase the talents of the Glyndebourne Chorus and Tour Orchestra. Part I will be packed with opera highlights – rousing tunes that will stay in your head long after the curtain comes down. Yuletide classics and carols for all will follow in Part II.

As well as the family-friendly Christmas concert you can also enjoy a host of festive offerings at Glyndebourne during your visit – a warming meal in one of our onsite restaurants, or a spot of Christmas shopping in our shop.

What better way to start the Christmas countdown?

As part of the booking process you can select your own seats. To manage social distancing within the auditorium, all seats are grouped in pairs. If you’d like to book an odd number of seats, please call the Box Office on 01273 815 000 (Monday – Friday, 11.00am – 5.00pm).

Autumn experience – enhance your visit

We have been working hard to provide the best experience under the current guidelines. Enhance your visit by booking a pre-performance dining experience, or a reserved space if you prefer to bring your own picnic. By selecting one of these options you will be able to arrive 2.5 hours before the performance begins, allowing you to make the most of your visit.

Pre-performance dining options:

  • Middle and Over Wallop restaurant: three-course pre-performance dining
  • Mildmay tearooms: Ha-Ha afternoon tea
  • Greenhouse & Garden Marquees: bookable for those bringing their own refreshments

We’ve ensured there’s plenty of distancing between parties in each location, and have opened more spaces to ensure that everyone who wants to extend their visit, can. Please note that all dining options must be booked in advance online or through the Box Office, including space in the marquees.

If you choose not to extend your visit time by pre-booking one of our dining options, for your safety you’ll be asked to arrive no more than 20 minutes before the performance start time. Unfortunately, the grounds won’t be open for general use and the Long Bar will remain closed for the autumn performances.

Please be aware that to ensure your safety there will be no interval during the performances.

Thank you for working with us during these extraordinary times.
