The Arts & Expression theme for next year's The Secret Garden Party has not yet been announced.
The number one rule is any idea must facilitate participation. To ensure that this principle is upheld, Secret Garden Party gives over half of all programming money back to the gardeners, in the form of arts and expression grants.
With the theme announced SGP is now asking for next year’s creative wonders to apply to help in creating next year's experience. Since launching the Grants Programme in the Garden, there’s been an explosion of creative work adorning the site with imaginative installations year on year. Artists, Designers & the wildly creative, be a part of this credible arts collective. With commissions, grants and development funds available contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as music there's loads of activities for kids and adults alike, and this event is more of a party experience Parades, Art tents, Walkabout Theatre & Theatre workshops, Big Wheel Rides, Boat Rides, Swimming, Treasure Hunts, Bands in trees, open mic stages and as always, participatory games of all descriptions.
The festival offers restaurants, food talks, cocktail bars, ale tents, massages, kids area, barefoot discos and twilight fire circle tales.
The festival is spread out over two sides of a lake with a large main stage area, 'The Great Stage' and then smaller tent venues dotted around, like 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'The Living Room', and 'Small World' which all have artistic décor. The happenings on the main stage side are generally more dancey and louder, and the other side has a more acoustic and chilled vibe.
The Action Camps are the life blood of Secret Garden Party. They are created by festival goers, for festival goers.
