About the Glyndebourne Festival
Glyndebourne has a myriad of traditions associated with it; the extended interval between acts in shows is one of them. This gives those attending the chance to dine at some of the region’s finest restaurants or serve up a gourmet picnic of their own on blankets and rugs sprawled across the grounds. Extravagance is encouraged; many bring their own tables, some embellish them with ice buckets and candlesticks, and almost everyone shows up in immaculate evening dress.
