From May to August, we stage the Glyndebourne Festival - our flagship season during which audiences can enjoy six world-class operas.

A key part of the experience is the 90-minute interval - a chance to enjoy a picnic in the gardens or dinner at one of our three on-site restaurants. You're welcome to bring your own picnic, or order one to pick up when you arrive.

With glorious gardens open from two hours before the performance, there's plenty of time to wine and dine before (or even after) the main event too.
