Fine food and Glyndebourne go hand-in-hand

Since the Festival began in 1934, a long interval has been a hallmark of the experience.

90 minutes in which to enjoy time with family and friends or simply savour the landscape. There's also the hour or two before a performance, or an opportunity to linger after the curtain comes down.

Many people choose to picnic in our 12 acres of glorious gardens. Bring your own or let us do the preparation for you and pre-order one to be delivered to your table.

Prefer the great indoors? Glyndebourne has three on-site restaurants where your experience can range from a relaxed afternoon tea to sumptuous fine dining, this year in partnership with Michelin-starred chefs the Galvin brothers.
