Wend your way to the Estate and be ushered through to our Fields pavilion where you will warm up with a Pialligo Spritz composed of Estate-grown ingredients or a glass of mulled wine, as trays of canapés do the rounds.

After this initial overture – and with the appetite well and truly awakened – enjoy a selection of choice charcuterie from the Estate’s award-winning Smokehouse before tucking into traditional Spanish paella. Listen on as the event climbs towards its crescendo, with a quartet of the CSO’s finest musicians taking to the stage for a performance of winter-themed chamber music. Guaranteed to stir the soul and send the spirits soaring!
