Bite sized opera in the Great Barn  presented by Outreach Opera

Sunday 25th August

Outreach Opera are returning to Hoghton Tower for another journey through life, love, happiness and tragedy.

Refreshments will also be available to purchase. Please note, seating is very limited for this event so you are advised to book swiftly, to avoid disappointment.
