Glyndebourne Menu Ideas

Glyndebourne Canapé Picnic Menu

We will meet you on arrival at Glyndebourne with drinks (Champagne is always a popular choice!) and canapés still warm from the oven.

Then depending on your preference we can either prepare a Catered Lunch/Dinner for you in the interval or we can create a unique picnic experience for you to enjoy at your leisure.

We also provide hot drinks on arrival or for the interval as sometimes the Summer weather can still be a bit chilly!

All our food is homemade and where possible made from organic and free range local produce.

Have a look at our sample menus for some ideas of what to have, or give us a call and we will be more than happy to talk you through your choices! Here’s an idea of what has been previously popular for Glyndebourne events, although feel free to devise your own menu!
