The arts festival Nevill Holt Opera takes place annually at the end of June and the start of July at Nevill Holt Hall in Leicestershire UK. As well as an opera production, the festival features an al fresco exhibition of contemporary British sculpture.
Nevill Holt was host to Grange Park Opera from 2002, and it went independent in 2013 with a production of Mozart's The Magic Flute.
