As usual we stay at the delightful 3* Deans Place Hotel in the picturesque and historic village of Alfriston, just 20 minutes’ drive from Glyndebourne, where General Manager James Dopson and his staff have been welcoming Kirker clients for many years. This year we are introducing ‘Opera with the experts’, a relaxed morning at the hotel with short talks given by an opera expert to discuss the operas in more detail. There will also be free time to explore Alfriston.
