Nevill Holt 2017

This year, Stones Events are proud to once again be the chosen caterer for the annual Nevill Holt Opera– a fifth year running no less!

There have been some exciting additions to 2017; with the introduction of ‘The Kitchen Garden’ buffet-style dining, a new Champagne Bar location on the lawn, the debuting of picnic-dining in the Chapel, and our new bookings system.


In ‘The Kitchen Garden’, guests will be wowed by a beautiful selection of cured meats, sumptuous seafood dishes, colourful salads and an array of tempting desserts. This will all be created by the talented celebrity chef Ben Tish whose past experience boasts Saturday Kitchen appearances, and an Executive Chef and Partner position at the Salt Yard Group (to name a  few!). Ben promotes seasonality within his cooking and always endeavours to use the freshest local produce where possible. Guests can enjoy his delicacies along our large communal table within the shaded marquee overlooking Nevill Holt’s kitchen garden, or served in their Private Pavilion.

Another addition to this year’s catering programme is that guests have been invited to bring their own picnics to the enchanting Chapel which will be beautifully laid out for their arrival. Nevill Holt Opera Porters will be available to assist guests with their picnics and all cutlery, glassware and crockery will be provided.


Along with all these unveilings, there has been the exciting introduction of a new booking system! The online ‘shop’ allows a full description of dining experiences where visitors can select and pay for whatever they wish.


Along with catering and booking changes, this has been an incredibly exciting time for the Nevill Holt Opera. For one, the Opera won the prize for best festival and event 2016 at the Leicester and Leicestershire Tourism Awards. Furthermore, planning consent was granted for a new theatre at Nevill Holt. Opening in 2018, the new Theatre will provide an evermore beautiful and permanent home for the Opera, and “breathe new life into this historic building”.

It is a great time to be involved with the Nevill Holt Opera what with its recent success there and including new accompaniments into the Stones Events catering programme whilst still maintaining the familiar charm of the Opera which the team, year-on-year enjoy delivering.
