A concert of beautiful concertos by candlelight, enjoyed on the grounds of a country mansion. This sounds like something out of Bridgerton, right? Well, this summer, you can live out your 1800s high society fantasies at Candlelight Open Air: Vivaldi’s Best Works. This Candlelight concert will take place on the sprawling grounds of Ashton Court Estate; tickets are available now.
On Friday, June 24, kickstart your weekend on the 860-acre estate, surrounding Bristol arts venue Arts Mansion. With the mansion’s bold yellow facade as backdrop, the lush green gardens surrounding the mansion will be illuminated by hundreds of (electric) candles; a magical setting for a talented string quartet to perform. Forget the inconsistent British weather and let the tinkering melodic notes wash over you as Vivaldi’s enchanting concertos are performed across 60 minutes. You can expect to hear extracts from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, which reimagines the spring, summer, autumn and winter as music, as well Concerto Alla Rustica and Concerto Conca.
The classical performance will begin as night falls at 9pm, creating an even more alluring vibe. Whether you’re in the mood for romance, relaxation or just something a little different, the night is sure to be unforgettable. Tickets start from as little as £22.50 – snap yours up here.
