Secret Garden Party
Secret Garden Party is a serious party. This year marks the 15th occasion, but sadly also the last one ever to be held — which gives you all the more reason to go. Hidden in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside; Secret Garden Party is one unique experience like no other. Think sunflower fields, a floating castle over a lake, spectacular fireworks, ballerina boxing ring, paint fights and endless amounts of glitter. Secret Garden Party is set to go out with a bang!
