Revised Season Plans for 2021

Longborough Artistic Director Polly Graham is determined to programme an unforgettable festival, and has made a few changes which will enable the largest audience possible to enjoy Longborough’s 2021 season, while prioritising the artistry of each production. Changes include: the addition of a new venue allowing for a larger audience under social distancing (The Big Top); new dates added for 2021; a concert production of Die Walküre, allowing for a full socially distanced Wagnerian orchestra in the Longborough theatre; and changes to Longborough’s Ring Cycle schedule.
