Tickets are priced at £190 (plus fully refundable £10 litter bond). A teen ticket is priced at £130, children aged under 12 years can attend for free, a campervan pass is priced at £60, and dog passes (limited numbers) were also available. Prices do not include booking fees.
To help those Gardeners, who prefer to spread the cost of their tickets, there are two types of instalment plans now available for adult tickets.
Since it's beginning in 2003, the Secret Garden Party has grown organically with an ethos of fun, friendliness, creativity and participation. Inspired by the original ethos of Glastonbury and Burning Man. The Secret Garden Party's, founder Head Gardener, aka Fred Fellowes, has succeeded in placing his own particular and idiosyncratic stamp on this event, making it quite unlike anywhere else in existence. His vision, commitment and enthusiasm continue to bring artistic communities together.
SGP has also won plaudits for award for spearheading the first UK public drug-testing scheme at last summer’s Secret Garden Party - a service approved by Cambridge Police and local health authorities - where people could have their drugs tested for safety on site.
But watch out for any new alcohol conditions they might announce - there's currently no alcohol restrictions on their terms & conditions page, after they removed a fully "no alcohol at all" set of conditions which didn't allow any alcohol to be brought onto the campsite or into any of the festival. Based on the restrictions they've had previously, it seems unlikely that they'll be no restrictions on alcohol.
