Open Day at The Grange

Sun 07/05/17 12:30 PM - 5:30 PM

The Grange Festival host an Open Day to showcase improvements to the site and theatre.

Only a few weeks until the opening night of the first festival The Grange is a hive of activity in preparation for this great moment. Come and see what’s happening at the Spring Open Day. Last September, The Grange Festival announced its arrival with its first ever Open Day to which over 1200 people came for talks, guided tours, concerts, local pop-up food and drink stalls, cookery lessons, and much more.

Come and see the substantial improvements to the park, the house and the theatre, hear about the festival, and be the first to sit in the new seats in the theatre for a performance of Handel’s magical Acis and Galatea given by students from the Royal Academy of Music. In addition, well-known musical animator Peter Gritton will lead you into the mysteries of the music of the operas in the Festival. Peter has worked with fans at Chelsea Football Club and devised their own symphony of chants. He can get you singing opera arias without you even realising it, and shed light on what opera is really about and why some great tunes just stay in our minds and hearts forever.

Do come along for what promises to be a fabulous family afternoon out, see the extraordinary changes in the park, eat and drink delicious things from well-known local suppliers, enjoy brilliant music making and become a part of the new Grange.
