CTA member Borde Hill Garden in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, is gearing up for a summer of entertainment including hosting the Sussex Festival of Gin and performances of Open-Air Opera – all set within the Estate’s bloom-filled gardens.

The Estate hosts the Sussex Gin Festival on Saturday 13 July in the South Park.

Sussex is a big player in the Great British ‘ginaissance’. The county has become a hotbed for producing bespoke, small batch and artisan gins from more than 200 gin distilleries. Visitors will be able to try out a wide range of locally-distilled gins, watch demonstrations on all things gin, and tantalise their taste buds with artisan hot and cold food, whilst enjoying live entertainment throughout the day.

Also in July, Britain’s leading outdoor touring company, Opera Brava, will be performing within Borde Hill’s Garden, against the magical backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House, two open-air productions. La Traviata takes place on 26 July and The Barber of Seville is being performed on the 27 July, with a chamber ensemble.
