The Coverwood Lakes Opera returns for a special 25th anniversary event this year. Nestled in the heart of the glorious Surrey Hills, surrounded by lakes and gardens, the stunning setting provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of high quality entertainment.
This year the event taking place on Sunday 28 June is in partnership with Surrey Hills Enterprises and offers guests a unique ‘Surrey Hills’ taste experience with locally produced food and drink on offer. The ‘Fillet & Bean’, Coverwood’s mobile kitchen modelled on the iconic American Airstream trailer will be offering premium Surrey Hills lamb and beef burgers as well as vegetarian options. There will also be an opportunity to sample Silent Pool Gin which takes its name and water from the mythical spring-fed Silent Pool as well as Albury Organic Rose an elegant and crisp wine with fresh summer fruit flavours. Taurus wines will be bringing their newly refurbished Citroen H Van where they will be serving a selection of beverages and proprietor, Rupert Pritchett, named by the Observer Magazine as one of the 50 Rising Stars of The Drinks Industry, will be on hand for drinks advice.
“Now in it’s 25th year the Opera Anniversary Concert promises to be bigger and better than ever. The evening promises to be a fun-packed evening of popular arias along with locally-produced food & drink in a spectacular Surrey Hills setting. It’s been a great opportunity to partner with Surrey Hills Enterprises this year and I look forward to the event evolving into a music, food and drink festival in future years”
Sponsored by Charles Russell Speechlys, Investec Wealth & Investment and Wilkins Kennedy, the event will take place in Coverwood’s stylish marquees beside the lily-strewn top lake. The gardens and lakes will be open for picnics from 5pm. On arrival, guests will be greeted with a welcome drink and enjoy music drifting across the lake before the performance at 7pm. Guests are welcome to bring their own picnics and/or purchase food and drink. Coverwood favourite’s Linda Ormiston, James Nicol, Kathryn Harries and Donald Maxwell will perform popular operatic arias and some rather fun musical pieces for which they have established their reputation.
Tickets are priced at £45 per person and include a complimentary drink on arrival and coffee/tea at the interval.
