Michael Wade our Honorary Chairman has been a guiding light since the formation of the company. His home Trafalgar Park in Wiltshire was the venue for our recent recording A Night at the Opera. Trafalgar Park is a popular venue for weddings, corporate and private events and the magnificent Baroque Hall is a perfect venue for opera and other events.
