Description

LECTURE & LUNCH followed by coffee with Q&A session

The most successful Engilsh opera ever meets free love on the Somerset Levels! That's the intriguing title of Dr Richard Hall's talk on Rutland Boughton, the infamous British composer of The Immortal Hour and other such masterpieces. Dr Hall heads up the Dorset Rural Music School charity in Blandford Forum. It has been the focus of music in the county for 70 years.

11:45 Coffee on arrival at Slepe Green

12:00 Illustrated lecture in the barn followed by a two-course lunch with a glass of wine, with a Q&A session and more coffee to end the afternoon.

Tickets £32 per person - discounted to £26 per person for Friends and Patrons of Dorset Opera.

Each ticket price includes a voluntary donation aspect. Although we rely very heavily on your kind donations to carry on bringing you top class opera in Dorset, you are under no obligation to make one.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Slepe Green is on Slepe Farm Lane, just off the south side of the A35 at Slepe. The turning is opposite the road leading to the Bulbury Golf Course. There is plenty of parking around the house and in a small paddock (look for the signs) but please DO NOT PARK ON THE VERGES of the lane which is used by heavy farm vehicles all day. Please drive in carefully, looking out for Dougal the dog, and park tightly, bearing in mind we have to fit a lot of cars in!

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Call the Dorset Opera Festival office 01258 840000 or email us at info@dorsetopera.com

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

If it is your first Bluffers then it's probably a good idea. But if you forget it don't worry - we'll have a record of you.

What is the refund policy?

You can cancel up to 7 days before the event. After that we'll have spent money on the catering so, regrettably, we will not be able to give a refund.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes. You can give your ticket to a friend if you cannot come - but it would be kind to email us to let us know.

Can we cater for special dietary requirements?

You have an opportunity to request a vegetarian or gluten free meal when booking. Regretably we cannot cater for people with life-threatening allergies.
