We are truly honoured that The Grange Festival has chosen to support The Murray Parish Trust during their Opera performances throughout 2017.
The Grange Festival launched on 7th June and takes place at The Grange in Northington, Hampshire, an historic building with a stunning backdrop for this summer long festival of Opera.
Presenting Carmen, Verdi’s Requiem, Monteverdi’s il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, Britten’s comedy Albert Herring and a celebration of Rogers & Hammerstein/Rogers & Hart, the festival boasts an award winning newly refurbished theatre and grounds designed by Alan Titchmarsh and Kim Wilkie.
World class performances through the rest of June & July are as follows:
Il ritorno D’Ulisse in patria: June 7, 16, 18, 24 and July 2
Carmen: June 11, 15, 17, 23, 28, 30 and July 8
Albert Herring: June 25, 29 and July 1, 7, 9

The Murray Parish Trust attended The Grange Open Day in May and we were joined by the wonderful Lucy McLoughlin, a live event artist who painted stunning portraits of people at the event,
We were also lucky enough to attend a thrilling dress rehearsal performance of Carmen where we held a collection and want to thank everyone for their generous donations.
Sarah Parish (co-founder of The Murray Parish Trust) attended Carmen on Sunday the 11th June and says: “I had the pleasure of going to see one of my favourite operas at the wonderful Grange on Sunday. It was beautifully performed and sung with an energetic cast. We had a lovely supper in the interval and a fabulous champagne reception afterwards. It was a truly terrific night”
