Secret Garden Party 2015 preview
A Giant sunflower field, secret stages, a haybale fortress and magical after parties in mind altering dreamlike worlds hidden amongst the trees, the popular boutique festival Secret Garden Party is one of the highlights of the summer. Taking place between 23rd and 26th July, the sold out SGP, now in it’s 13th year, is recognised as one of the finest independent arts and music festivals in the UK.

The eclectic line up includes Bear’s Den, Temples, Public Service Broadcasting, Jungle, Kate Tempest and many more, but the beautiful surroundings offer something beyond just the music.
