Celebrate Voice Summer Gala returns to the grounds of Little Durnford

Tickets are now on sale for A Summer Serenade at Little Durnford Manor for the Celebrate Voice Festival.

The celebrated gala show presents an evening of opera and show songs, amidst the stunning rolling countryside of the Woodford Valley, on Saturday, 15th July, from 6pm.

The event is the first of the Celebrate Voice 10th festival season. It has become a prominent musical and social date of Salisbury’s summer calendar, taking place just three miles from Salisbury.

Guests are invited to picnic in the beautiful grounds, enjoy performances from international singers and browse the art exhibition presented by Plain Arts Salisbury. And audiences never fail to delight in the parade of camels during the extended picnic interval.

As darkness falls, the backdrop of the Manor House is spectacularly lit, creating an unparalleled ambience with music and nature.

Joining festival director Lynsey Docherty and co-host Philip Smith, are familiar and new names to Celebrate Voice supporters – Nick Dwyer (baritone), Hannah Pedley (mezzo), Anthony Flaum (tenor) and Lara Müller (soprano), with David Gostick as musical director.

Celebrate Voice are delighted to make a return to the magical venue, courtesy of the Earl and Countess of Chichester. Director, Lynsey Docherty said: “Our summer celebration is a breathtakingly beautiful musical extravaganza in a most perfect English countryside setting – it is no wonder the event sells out every year.
“I am excited to be sharing with our audience during the evening our incredible plans for our 10th festival.”

Tickets (£40, £35 in advance, plus booking fee) are now on sale at

Celebrate Voice will return to Salisbury’s Guildhall in 2023 for its 10th Anniversary Season following its acclaimed sell-out seasons in 2021 and 2022.
