Bloom Britannia is Barefoot Opera’s new people’s opera – first staged in October 2021 in Hastings – inspired by life in a seaside town in modern Britain, with people from the communities of Hastings, St. Leonards-on-sea and Bexhill singing alongside a professional cast.

Barefoot Opera believes that opera – and singing – can be a fundamental and positive part of everyone’s lives. Alongside the opera was a wide-ranging and inclusive outreach project that brought the joy of singing and music-making to hundreds of local people, partner organisations, schools and charities.
