Iford Arts Festival image

The internationally renowned Iford Arts Festival takes place in the exquisite Peto Garden of Iford Manor, near Bath in the South West of England. The award-winning garden and its intimate and unique performance spaces combine to create a magical experience.

Captivating and intimate Opera performances are staged in-the-round for an audience of 90 in the miniature Italianate cloister and are all sung in English.

Popular and informal free flowing promenades together with seated cloister concerts complete the festival programme. All events offer a chance to relax over a pre-show picnic, whilst enjoying the peaceful tranquillity of the Peto Garden as the river Frome gently meanders through the Iford valley.

Visit the website for information about 3-to-Tea and other amateur performances, free with garden entry.
