Battle Festival offers literary and visual delights

The third annual Battle Festival is officially underway this week after launching last weekend with the world premiere of brand new opera, PUSH, in collaboration with Glyndebourne Opera. “PUSH was a thrilling way to launch the festival”, says Sally Lampitt, Festival Director, “paving the way for a month of exciting international arts in Battle, with something for everyone.”
