Reader Offer – Winslow Hall Opera’s ‘Un Ballo in Maschera’ by Verdi at Winslow Hall, Winslow, Buckinghamshire, MK18 3HL – 7th to 16th July 2017.
‘La traviata’ was performed at Winslow Hall in 2015, its set was designed by Sam Steer

 

Grade I listed Winslow Hall itself is a fascinating house that was once described as “the Rolls-Royce of English domestic architecture”. Supposedly built to the designs of Sir Christopher Wren, the building – famed for its curiously tall chimneys – has variously been a school, an office for RAF Bomber Command and an antiques showroom.

 

Restored as a private house by a former British ambassador to the Netherlands in the 1950s, Winslow Hall was sold to the former restaurateur Christopher Gilmour and his delightful Australian wife, Mardi, in 2010.

  1. Is this the Glyndebourne of Buckinghamshire? I’d never heard of it but it does sound like a most pleasant way to spend an evening.

  2. I am on the Board of a small, newly created opera company, the Queens Opera Theatre, and this is something we could be emulating. Thanks for sharing.
