The Gala in the Garden event featured four singers and a luxury picnic hosted by Kamilla Dunstan and fellow founder and Carrie-Ann Williams.

All money raised at the event will be used to help fund a heritage day at Scrooby Manor in August, an outreach programme giving Manor Opera the chance to help upcoming musicians in the local area and work with school children to teach the history behind opera through Bassetlaw Museum.

Kamilla Dunstan said: “the concert was great and we couldn't have asked for better weather.

"It was the perfect event for people to come along and enjoy opera with no stigma attached. It was a very relaxed environment and the perfect introduction for those who maybe hadn’t been to the opera before.”
