Share this event:
Event Date
June 8 @ 11:00 am

Join us from 11am, to explore the exquisite gardens, and choose a relaxing spot in our Walled Garden, whilst enjoying a leisurely lunch over a feast of music.

At 1pm, Blackbird Opera will present an hour-long concert of music, joined by four guest soloists, the singers will take you on an exciting journey through the wondrous world of opera.

Featuring well-known arias, duets and ensembles from much-loved operas by Bizet, Puccini, Verdi, Mozart and more, there is no better way to introduce opera to all the family.

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Galloway Hills, with plenty of time to walk around the gardens, enjoy catching up with friends whilst indulging in a slice of artisan pizza from our wood-fired pizza oven in the Walled Garden, or bring a picnic to share with family. Tea, coffee and ice cream also available – please be sure to book in advance.

We will have cover available in the event of rain, but please come prepared with something warm and waterproof, as well as picnic blankets and chairs (only if you need one). No dogs please.
