The Battle of Hastings – it happened here….
right here in the heart of BATTLE in 1066!

mms_20160429_131558And Battle Festival will mark this momentous date in history with a major new opera, commissioned from internationally acclaimed composer Howard Moody. We’ll bring you Glyndebourne musicians and soloists, we’ll add musicians from major orchestras including the London Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic, and we’ll throw into the mix a choir of 300 adults and children from across the 1066 Country region. We’ll show you colliding cultures, we’ll celebrate diversity, and we’ll embrace togetherness. The outcome will be our combined legacy to future generations in Battle and 1066 Country.

Think BIG – Think World Class – Think Battle!
then expect the unexpected…
and remember: events in Battle have the power to change the course of history and shape the future.
