Festival Information

Secret Garden Party 2011 Overview

The Secret Garden Party is a temporary community that is as free, irreverent, friendly and engaging as it is possible to be. It is conceived as a moment in the year where you can connect to your creative powers, explore your wildest fantasies and meet thousands of people who all want to meet you. It is a gathering that exists for only four days - away from cities and schedules, brands and boundaries – founded on participation and with the potential to change your life. It is a festival of the arts…where everyone is the artist.

To truly understand Secret Garden you must walk through the festival gates as if Monday was never destined to arrive and everyone you are about to meet will be the love of your life. Buy your ticket, pitch your tent, turn off your phone…then relax and float downstream. See you in July.

The whole event is geared around experiences – expect much much more than great music. Games, parades, arts & cookery events, theatre, and a host of other entertainment are all in the mix to create a truly eclectic weekend.

Ticket prices (from):
Adult: £155
Teen: £125
Under 12: Free when purchased with adult ticket
Tickets include 4 day event camping & parking.

The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Origins & Frontiers’ and specific event and activity details have yet to be finalised.
