Iford Arts

An operatic jewel of a festival in the heart of glorious countryside

Iford Arts is Bath’s answer to Glyndebourne – world class opera staged in a beautiful setting. Beginning in 1995, over 50 productions were presented at Iford Manor but in 2019 it moves to two new homes – the banqueting room of Bath Guildhall in May, and in August it takes up residence in the glorious grounds of Belcombe Court in Bradford-on-Avon near Bath. 

There, in a specially commissioned geodesic dome seating 240, Iford Arts will present four nights of opera – Donizetti’s L’Elisir D’Amore, a picnic prom and concert from 31 August to 7 September.
