Holkham will welcome back Diva Opera, Britain’s foremost chamber opera company, to the magically decorated Marble Hall, for an entertaining evening of song, and finest period costume, perfect to get you into the festive spirit.

Next Stop Christmas presents a group of strangers on a train, all with somewhere important to be for Christmas - but will the fates (and the weather) allow them to get there on time? It looks like a bumpy ride is in store, but Diva Opera’s delightful selection of highlights from opera and musicals, together with a few seasonal favourites, is guaranteed to keep everyone’s spirits high. A cast of five international soloists is led as ever by Bryan Evans at the piano.
