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.
While we're on the subject of outfits, it's traditional to wear evening dress during the Glyndebourne Festival thanks to founder John Christie, who felt it was one of the ways the audience could show its respect for the performers. You'll certainly turn a few heads if you're travelling on public transport.
