Join us for a special Members’ experience
Discover more about the work that goes on behind the scenes at Glyndebourne at one of our Festival Society Members’ Days with backstage tours and bespoke workshops. Each day will begin with a welcome from Gus and end with a film screening.
Dates: Friday 8 March and Saturday 9 March.
Time: 10.00am – 5.30pm
Take a guided backstage tour where you will get the chance to take a peek inside dressing rooms, the orchestra pit and the green room. You’ll also get a sneak preview inside the Production Hub, the new home of our costume, props and wig departments. With special access to the Production Hub you’ll meet some of the craftspeople working on this summer’s Festival productions.
