The ticket included a tour of the Castle, musical performances, including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, from an ensemble of period musicians in different areas of the Gardens looking across an Arcadian summer park, with madrigals by Sansara in the old walled Monks’ Garden, and a jazz band by the 18th century temple.

This was a very unique event and tickets were limited for the enjoyment of the guests. All visitors were welcomed to enjoy the Gardens, Music and Gift Shop throughout the day from 11am – 4pm.

The event was very successful and we hope to host this again in the near future. For updates on any upcoming event please visit our ticket website.
