Hospitality Packages & Private Dining

Create your perfect Glyndebourne experience.

‘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 real escape from the day-to-day.

Get out of town, wear something gorgeous, and entertain your guests in the beautiful gardens with drinks and canapés, 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.
