This year’s theme ‘Sweet Dreams…are made of this?’ takes a humorous look at the fame game. Is being a celebrity all it’s cracked up to be? Or, do we want to change the world…together?  Secret Garden Party takes you on the ride of your life.

So you want to start a revolution? This summer the Secret Garden Party wants to give you the chance to do just that. It’s the 50th anniversary of the summer of love and we call on all of you music loving flower children to unite in the meadows and immerse yourself in the sounds of silence. Jump aboard the Almost Famous tour bus '17 and join Penny Lane on a journey of musical enlightenment via a set of tasks and get the chance to graduate from ‘groupie’ to ‘band aid.’ 

And remember it's not about the fame, it's about the music and we're all on the guest list.

"You're either on the bus or off the bus. If you're on the bus, and you get left behind, then you'll find it again. If you're off the bus in the first place — then it won't make a damn.” – Ken Kasey

Plus, SGP’s long-standing partners Wonky Races join the Garden with Channel Hop. A giant TV where you get to be the star. There’ll be much merriment and belly-laughs with shows such as 'Top of the Hops' or 'Hop Stars The Rivals'  to name a few.

As they say, the only limit is that of the imagination, and this year SGP promises to raise the bar more than ever with its abundance of revelries and celebrations.  Accept no imitations.  From  a-list parties, secret swimming, boating, fine dining, talks and debates, Guerilla Science, 24 hour parties, spoken word, woodland parties, award ceremonies, hot tubs, interactive art installations, game shows, talent shows, pub quizzes, paint fights, mud fights, dance off’s, and a whole host more, this is the party you always wanted to join. Look out for more news coming soon….

BIG GREEN COACH OFFER & EASY PAYMENT PLAN!!

Check the ticket page for details.  But hurry!  Only the first 100 gardeners can take advantage for this great offer
