Nevill Holt has been proud to host high quality opera over the past ten years. From its inception in a bubble on the lawn, to its move to the Old Stable Block Theatre, Grange Park Opera has been consistently bringing fine productions to the area.
Having achieved a decade of partnership we are now taking the plunge and striking out on our own; to establish a fully independent, fully functioning festival in its own right. Welcome to the Nevill Holt Festival.
Our commitment is to the local area, to young talent and to creative integrity. Our values are firmly rooted in our founder David Ross’s extensive work with academies in the Midlands and in Lincolnshire and his collaboration with the creative arts nationwide. Every part of the festival is designed to celebrate and invest in young British talent.
We aim to establish an ongoing collaboration with the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House and to form an orchestra from the recent graduates of major music colleges in the UK. In this way we will showcase and discover the next generation of operatic talent.
We are expanding our programming by making a feature of the magnificent gardens at Nevill Holt, as well as the seminal sculpture that fills them, creating additional experiences from next year. Culinary wizardry will take place in the Lawn restaurant and a matinee performance designed to include young families will help introduce the next generation to the joys of opera.
