We have some great traders on site who also contribute to keeping the event free so we’d love you to support them if you can; however, you are welcome to bring your own food and soft drinks. If you bring your own picnic, we encourage you to take your rubbish home for recycling and composting – thank you.

What is disabled access like?
The Lower Terrance can be accessed by predominantly flat wide paths from the car park and is wheelchair accessible; however, the viewing area is predominantly grass. Limited disabled parking is available in the car park at East Court Mansion which is adjacent to the garden. If you have any specific needs please get in touch to discuss with the team.
Please tell our Traffic Marshalls if you need access to the disabled parking area and they will direct you. Please be aware that the disabled parking area is limited, but we will do our best to accommodate you.
Can I bring a gazebo or umbrella?
As the garden is on a slope it’s not suitable for gazebos. However, you are welcome to bring small umbrellas and other sun shades. Please be careful not to obscure anyone else’s view. You may be asked to locate at the back of the garden.
Should I bring a chair or picnic rug?
The garden has a natural amphitheatre design well suited to music events. You’re welcome to bring a chair if you sit at the back of the garden, however, for most people the easiest option is to bring a picnic rug.
