Hospitality and events

‘Not just the best we can do but the best that can be done anywhere.’
John Christie, founder of Glyndebourne


Enjoy the ultimate opera experience in the Sussex countryside

Surrounded by the rolling hills of the South Downs, a visit to Glyndebourne is a quintessential English summer experience and a real escape from the day-to-day.

Get out of town, wear something gorgeous, and entertain your guests in the beautiful gardens with champagne and canapes, served by your own waiter, before entering the award-winning, indoor auditorium for a thrilling evening of sublime music and electrifying performances.

With a 90 minute interval, there’s plenty of time to take in the stunning views of the South Downs over a traditional seated picnic with your guests and clients, or to enjoy three course fine dining in our popular Middle and Over Wallop restaurant.

Or work with us to curate your own private dining event and make your experience as out-of-the-ordinary as the opera you’ll experience on stage.
