Sounds Green proms take place every Wednesday evening this July. These are relaxed and informal recitals on the Main Lawn from young, up-and-coming ensembles excited by the prospect of performing in such glorious surroundings. Do bring along a small folding chair or cushion to sit on – and check the weather forecast to see if a brolly and raincoat may be required for the English summer!
The Garden Café will be offering a seasonal special menu including, weather permitting, a barbecue on the outdoor terrace, while a Main Lawn outstation will be set up offering delicious nibbles and antipasti, icecreams, fresh strawberries with cream.
We are indebted to Mills & Reeve for their support for Sounds Green.
