Opera and wine, a perfect combination, especially when they are both sparkling! We perform Rossini’s famous farcical comedy Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville). After great success here last summer with Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri, we're sure that regular and new Court Gardens Farm audiences alike will be in for a real treat here again.

Venue Information

Court Gardens Farm

This picturesque East Sussex Vineyard is known to have existed as a farm since Saxon Times, when it was known as the Manor of Ditchling Garden. Directly off the farmyard is a beautiful early-nineteenth-century barn with brick walls and a clay tile roof; this building would originally have been used as a Threshing Barn, and after 200 years serving various farm duties it was beautifully restored to host wine tastings. And now for its next function, opera!

Facilities at this venue include:

  • Parking
  • Interval bar (Court Gardens sparkling wine)
  • Toilets
