The Vache Baroque Festival, an innovative open-air music venue specialising in Baroque repertoire, is back for a full season of cultural delights this summer! Set within the stunning grounds of The Vache, an historic stately home located in Chalfont St Giles, Bucks, VBF brings audiences a varied programme of opera, dance, drama and much more.
The festival runs from 28 August to 5 September and ends with two staged performances of Handel's popular pastoral opera, Acis & Galatea, starring celebrated soprano Rowan Pierce.
As Handel's most enduring dramatic work, this beautiful tale of love, tragedy and prevailing hope will transport you to the idyllic utopia of nymphs and shepherds.
We warmly encourage patrons to arrive early to enjoy a picnic (bring your own or head to the onsite bar for a selection of food and drinks!), explore the gardens and watch our pre-show pop-up performances.
