It's not all rock n roll here at Country Calling, we're big fans of Hatch House Ballet
in Wiltshire which this year showcases the superstar Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta. Acosta has danced with companies including the Bolshoi, Paris Opera and the Royal Ballet.
Set in the picturebook grounds of 17th century Hatch House, two champagne fuelled nights will feature nine performances with the premier of several brand new works.
Dinner - a gala number with serious wine matching - takes place in the Dutch walled garden while world class artists dance among the scented blossoms.
Civilised? Very. Culture in the country, our own mini Glyndebourne.
Hatch House Ballet is organised by the Covent Garden Dance Company. More information here
