We are extremely grateful to the Bowerman Charitable Trust for inviting Opera South once again to The Music Room at Champs Hill – a private concert hall created by retired farmer and music lover David Bowerman and his wife, Mary. The Hall is set in stunning West Sussex countryside and its heathland garden has been developed around old sand quarries containing a collection of over 300 cultivars of heather and dwarf conifers and adorned with statues. Our concert is therefore also a special opportunity to visit the garden, which will open at 6 pm especially for Opera South guests.​

Friday 5th July 2019 - 7:30 pm (Gardens open at 6 pm, wine & canapés from 6:45 pm)
Tickets: £35 per person (plus £1.50 booking fee)
