A Day at the Opera

Each evening, the park opens two hours prior to the start of the performance, and we encourage you to make the most of this time to immerse yourself fully in the idyllic atmosphere of The Grange.

The Portico Bar

Grange Estate 260518 0088

Suspended over the monumental steps, The Portico Bar's beautiful lake views make it the perfect place to begin your evening.

Soak up the atmosphere whilst sipping on some perfectly chilled The Grange, Hampshire English Sparkling Wine which pairs wonderfully with a plate of local smoked trout or Becka's delicious canapés.

The Tea Pavilion

The Tea Pavilion can be found on the Cedar Tree Terrace. Take a seat, relax and indulge in something sweet and delicious. It opens two hours before the performance starts and remains open until the end of the long interval with no need to pre-book your tea and cake.

Dinner in the House

For Supper in the House, head into the faded grandeur of the historic mansion for a sumptuous picnic Supper.

Delicious local ingredients exquisitely prepared will await your return from the first half of the performance. When you've had your fill of the savoury course, Becka's team will bring you a selection of sweet treats. Tea and Coffee are available to round off your meal.

Supper in the Park

Arrive at your tent and find everything you need to begin your evening at The Grange. We will provide you with champagne flutes and highball glasses for your pre-performance entertaining. Why not pre-order canapés and a bottle of fizz?

While you enjoy the first half of the performance, we will set out your picnic in gorgeous bowls and platters so that everything looks beautiful ready for the interval. As you return to the theatre for the second half of the performance, we will clear everything away ensuring a blissfully stress-free evening from start to finish.
