Step into the world of Gilbert & Sullivan

If you’re the model of a modern major general, three little maids from school or just someone with a love of all things Gilbert and Sullivan, this three-night special interest holiday is for you. The International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival was established in 1994 and in the ensuing years performing groups and fans have come from all over the world to attend and take part. At its heart is a competition, with amateur Gilbert & Sullivan performing companies showcasing their productions and competing for the coveted trophy.

Climate

Included performances

Look forward to enjoying two included professional performances of Gilbert & Sullivan operas performed by the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company:

August 13, 2021 departures:

The Mikado
In one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular operas, the hero Nanki-Poo is in love with the Lord High Executioner's fiancé, Yum-Yum, but needs to make sure he doesn't lose his head!

HMS Pinafore
Step aboard HMS Pinafore to discover the captain's daughter is in love with a lower-class sailor, despite her father’s intention for her to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty. She abides by her father's wishes at first, but she later hatches a plan to elope with her beloved - what could possibly go wrong?

August 20, 2021 departures:

Patience
The well-born young ladies of the village, caught up in the fad of aestheticism, are infatuated with two contrasting aesthetic poets, but they are both in love with Patience, the simple village milkmaid, who cares nothing for poetry. You and Patience can learn the secret of true love and the point of aestheticism - if there is one...

The Pirates of Penzance
Throw together a band of pirates, a bumbling police force, a hapless Major General, and his gaggle of maiden daughters and you have the ingredients for a rollicking comic opera.
