Opera Holland Park, an urban opera company nestled in the serene setting of Holland Park, has been a cultural staple since 1996. Known for its blend of tradition and modernity, the company hosts a renowned three-month summer festival in its canopied open-air auditorium.

This unique venue, surrounded by formal gardens, woodlands, and the famed Kyoto Garden, attracts over 30,000 attendees each summer, offering a refreshing operatic experience in the heart of London.

The summer festival, central to Opera Holland Park’s year-round commitment to excellence, showcases critically acclaimed performances while promoting cultural, social, and well-being benefits within the local community.

The festival’s mission to make exceptional opera accessible to everyone in West London is reflected in its inclusive and community-focused ethos.

Integral to this mission is the Young Artists Scheme, which is unique in the UK. This programme identifies and nurtures emerging talent by providing young artists with the opportunity to rehearse in a professional environment and perform on a major London stage.

Participants also engage in the award-winning Inspire programme, developing outreach and education skills.

The Beckwith Trust’s support is pivotal in enabling these young performers to gain invaluable experience and exposure. By partnering with Opera Holland Park and its Young Artists Scheme, the Trust continues to advance its goal of fostering the next generation of opera talent.

This collaboration highlights the Beckwith Trust’s crucial role in shaping the careers of promising artists, while Opera Holland Park continues to redefine opera for a modern audience and enrich the cultural landscape of West London.
