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.
Coming by car is the easiest way to transport you and your picnic to the venue, especially if you're bringing outdoor garden furniture (it's surprisingly common to bring a table and some collapsible chairs!) or a large picnic basket. That said, a large number of opera-goers travelling from London take the train from Victoria. Not only is it the most glamorous train journey you'll ever take, with a hefty percentage of passengers dolled up in black tie outfits, but you can also book a free bus to take you from Lewes station to the grounds.
