Sunshine, picnics, and an afternoon of opera - a day out at Glyndebourne is the highlight of the summer festival season for many music-lovers. But why do people love it so much? Allow us to guide you through a day at the festival as it celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2014, from what to wear, to what to pack in your picnic basket.
It's not just the grounds that are deserving of a look; Glyndebourne plays host to a selection of artwork and archive exhibitions, telling the story of some of the Festival's best-known operas. The Festival programme is a work of art in its own right, featuring specially commissioned cover artwork - if you're feeling plush you can even buy the original painting.
