8th-12th August (9:30am-4pm)
Build an Opera Summer holiday course in Horsham will take place at 'Horsham's secret paradise', Chesworth Farm, which is only a short walk from the town centre. Get stuck into a world of creativity with tips on singing technique, costumes and sets to design, songs to write, sounds to discover and a story to make. Children will devise, compose, design, paint, and perform a brand new piece of music theatre in just one week. There will be a short performance for families to enjoy on the Friday at 6:00pm followed by a Glyndebourne style picnic at the farm, (weather permitting).

Regular course fee: £290
Select the number of children from your household taking part and sibling discounts will be applied to your entire booking (10% for 2 siblings, 15% for 3 siblings).


Your child will need to be dressed for the outdoors. They'll need to bring suncream, a sunhat, long trousers or leggings at the ready for exploring the area, a packed lunch each day (nut free please), snacks, a water bottle, raincoats and suitable outdoor footwear, a jumper or fleece (mornings in the barn can be a little chilly) and old clothing for scene painting and prop making. As the week progresses, we may ask for some help sourcing items from home for props and costumes. We won't know what these are initially as they will be based on the children's creative ideas.



Non-refundable £90 deposit per child

TOTAL COURSE FEES: One child: £290. Two siblings: £261 per child (10% discount).Three siblings: £246.50 per child (15% discount). A balance payment of the remaining course fees will be due by bank transfer by the end of 11th July 2022, details of which will be in your confirmation email.
