“The Grange Festival is one of those extraordinary events that are difficult to describe and which involve much more than the performances themselves.” (The Grange Festival)
Artistic Director Michael Chance and his team are committed to establishing The Grange as an international centre of excellence in the heart of Hampshire, and to present a variety of art forms such as ballet and drama alongside the core opera festival. The Grange Festival has a residency partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra who will accompany all productions at the 2020 festival.
Since 2017, the festival has been held annually at The Grange, one of Great Britain’s most famous neoclassical mansions. Located in Hampshire, seven miles from Winchester, it belongs to the family of John Baring, Lord Ashburton and is a listed building of English Heritage.
From 5 June to 12 July 2020, the Grange Festival will once again be dedicated to the various facets of art, from landscape sculptures to opera evenings and musical and ballet performances.
