About this Event

Glynde Place Concert Series 2020

The Glynde Place Concert Series features musicians from the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme. These young artists are at the start of their national and international music careers and are invited by BBC Radio 3 to be part of the scheme for two years.

The New Generation Artists perform all over the world in festivals and concert halls. However, for three evenings in the early summer, a few of them can be seen here in the intimate surroundings of Glynde Place.

Come early with a picnic and enjoy the garden and parkland of Glynde Place. The three concerts in the series take place in the panelled Gallery.

By Car: If coming via the A27 drive through the village, past the church and on past the main entrance to Glynde Place and then turn right through the park entrance. If coming via Glyndebourne turn left into the park entrance.
