Bonsall residents are adding a touch of magic to their open gardens this year with classical music and opera.

Alongside the annual open gardens event – held on the weekend of June 29-30 – villagers are also staging an enchanted evening of opera and classical music in St James Church on the Saturday at 7pm.

Performing will be Meeta Raval, BBC young opera singer of the World finalist, Oliver Gerrish counter tenor and Arjan and Stefan Byron.

Tickets available at the Barley Mow by calling 01629 825685 or emailing

The Open Gardens will start from 10am until 4pm both days.

Organiser Mike Susko said: “Bonsall is a wonderful and quirky limestone hill village with spectacular views at every turn. With two pubs and a café too, it promises to be a great day out!”
