Opera Holland Park and The Admirable Crichton

The Admirable Crichton and Opera Holland Park have again partnered to offer hungry (and thirsty) opera goers the chance to savour the highest quality food and drinks at each performance.

Watching opera in the open air has many benefits; beautiful sound quality, an enchanting atmosphere and of course the ability to picnic in the park. Notably, Admirable Crichton chefs have perfected, cooked, and carefully packed fresh salads, hand-baked loaves, charcuterie items, pastries and much more.  To ensure every item stays in perfect condition and is easy to carry (and due to the possibility of hot weather this summer), we have created custom-made re-usable picnic hampers.  All catering options must be pre-ordered.  Dinners, canapés and substantial snacks are also available.

A full selection of wines, Champagnes, cocktails and mocktails are available to be served in the OHP bar or consumed at pre-booked tables as part of a picnic.

What about the great British weather?

It’s not a problem at Opera Holland Park.  The venue provides a canopied auditorium to ensure that everyone stays dry to help with any unreliable weather. With this in mind you can rest assured that when planning your opera treat there this year, the soggy sandwich syndrome will not prevail.

Food envy

The best way to avoid this is to pre-order a picnic.  Food envy and being outside are both well known triggers for rumbling tummies, dry palates and  dissatisfaction with your home packed sandwiches. Need I say more?
