It’s Not Goodbye its Au Revoir….
As we turn out the lights on our final Iford Arts Festival at Iford Manor, we reflect on our journey over the last 25 years. As a charity, we are a small institution with an international reputation with work stretching far beyond acclaimed new opera productions. We have created a significant training programme for emerging artists and a successful education programme as well as community outreach.
We are enormously proud of what we have all achieved. The intimacy and magic of our in-the-round opera productions has been the key to our international reputation. Whether we find a new home to host our operas, proms and concerts or find a new context for the valuable work of the charity, this is potentially a very exciting time for all of us.
We would like to take you forward with us as we look to unfolding a new chapter at Iford Arts. Please join our mailing list to be kept informed of our events and news.
