Tickets are now on sale for The Sound of Summer at Little Durnford Manor for the Celebrate Voice Festival. This celebrated gala show presents opera and show songs, amidst the rolling countryside in the Woodford Valley, 3 miles from Salisbury, on Saturday 16 July from 6pm.

Celebrated as one of the most prominent musical and social events of Salisbury’s summer calendar, guests are invited to picnic in the beautiful grounds, enjoy performances from international singers and browse the art exhibition presented by Plain Arts Salisbury. The event sells out every year.

The first event of Celebrate Voice’s 2022 season, this fundraising gala is a multi-arts event bringing the community together, whilst presenting leading opera and music theatre artists, performing a wide range of showstopping songs. And audiences never fail to delight in the camels parade during the extended interval.

As dusk falls, the atmosphere becomes magical, as the historic Manor House emerges spectacularly illuminated amongst the treescape. Celebrate Voice are delighted to make a return to the magical venue, courtesy of the Earl and Countess of Chichester.

Tickets (£40, £35 in advance + booking fee) are now on sale at

Celebrate Voice will return to Salisbury’s Guildhall in 2022 following its acclaimed sell-out season in 2021, and anyone wishing to get involved as supporter, volunteer or business sponsor is encouraged to email the team at to support the festival.
