Glyndebourne

Whether you are an aficionado or new to opera, this is the concert for you! 

Seldom has such a stunning collection of world-class British based singers been assembled for one performance.  In addition, Classic FM presenter, John Suchet, will compère the concert.

A Unique Experience

Twelve of the most revered singers of our time will serenade you with a range of popular arias and ensembles from both opera and musicals in the world-famous Glyndebourne opera house.  With its wonderful acoustic and grounds, which are famed for its picnics, it will be a very memorable afternoon! Weather permitting you can bring your own picnic and enjoy the delights of the gardens – or enjoy afternoon tea or a glass of champagne in the bars.

Enriching one of Britain’s leading epilepsy communities

This stunning group of Britain’s best singers have generously agreed to donate their services for this amazing concert at Glyndebourne, which is organised by Brindley, Chris, Matt and Amy Sherratt.  Amy lives at The Meath as she has complex epilepsy but with the support given at The Meath, she and her friends are enabled to lead independent, creative and fulfilling lives as possible.

Join us as we “bring the house down” and raise £150,000 to further enrich the quality of life of The Meath residents through a series of exciting music, horticulture and animal projects.
