Made In Sussex

@ Glynde Place

2nd - 4th October

About the event

 Made in Sussex is a celebration of all the things we love about our county. All our screenings are home grown;  from the operas made at Glyndebourne, to the local connection of films like Emma, Strike and new release Hope Gap. Even the food and drink is sourced locally.

The event has three aims: to bring more people to the arts; to provide an affordable, fun day out in a beautiful setting for all ages; and to celebrate the magic of the county of East Sussex.

The event is a drive-in, because of Covid-19, but providing all well and weather good, people can bring blankets and enjoy this experience outside their cars (there will be enough distance between cars to ensure this).

Kooks guitarist Hugh Harris is to perform live on 2nd October at our opening event before the Glyndebourne screening of Cosi Fan Tutte

Hugh will sing a few songs from his eponymous debut solo album Curious Illusions, to be released on 11 September. This is the first such performance, and a world exclusive which we are very excited about!

Hugh was raised in Lewes and is a proud alumnus of the youth programme of Glyndebourne Opera, which makes an ideal prelude to our screening of Cosi Fan Tutte. Tickets are limited and include Hugh’s performance at 6pm followed by the screening of Cosi Fan Tutte. A number of free tickets are reserved for NHS staff only.

Sussex’s very own Hugh Harris co-founded The Kooks in Brighton in 2004 who were signed to Virgin within three months. Their first album Inside In, Inside Out released in 2006, went quadruple platinum and won the band MTV Europe’s ‘Best UK and Ireland Act’ that same year.

It all began with a love story in 1934, when founder John Christie met soprano Audrey Mildmay. Glyndebourne is now one of the finest and most celebrated opera houses in the world, delivering performances to some 150,000 people across a summer Festival and an autumn Tour.
