A Summer Vocal Recital at Champs Hill

Vocal Recital At Champs Hill, West Sussex

Friday 23 June 2017

‘I dreamt awhile’ – Visions of Romanticism

We are extremely grateful to the Bowerman Charitable Trust for inviting Opera South once again to The Music Room at Champs Hill. The Hall is set in stunning West Sussex countryside and its heathland garden has been developed around old sand quarries containing a collection of over 300 cultivars of heather and dwarf conifers and adorned with statues. Our concert is therefore also a special opportunity to visit the garden, which will open at 6 pm especially for Opera South guests.

The Music Room and Champs Hill Records are not-for-profit concerns. As David Bowerman says “It’s not about making money, it’s about giving people the chance to hear some of the finest musicians in the world, and about providing a platform for some of the marvellous young performers who are on their way up”.

Seating in The Music Room is un-numbered and un-reserved, but there will be a reserved section for Patrons, sponsors and advertisers.

Tickets: £35 per person (plus booking fee)



  • For the smooth running of your evening, please advise us of any dietary requirements on the booking form. We will be delighted to accommodate if advised at time of booking.
  • Wheelchair or any other special requirements: please advise us in the notes.
  • Dress Code: Smart Summer party wear
  • Latecomers only admitted between items
  • Ticket includes: entrance to garden; concert; drinks & canapes (beforehand & interval)
