Described either as a festival with a party atmosphere, or a party with a festival attitude, The Secret Garden is secluded in a private estate, occupying 100 acres in the grounds of an old Georgian farm house. The space boasts its own lake, river and landscaped gardens. Expect a wacky three-day experience, combining an eclectic mash-up of Big Chill-orientated acts alongside bizarre, off-the-wall pursuits, such as snail racing, rubber duck shooting and old fashioned story telling. Don’t wear yourself out too much though, as the ’emotion police’ will be patrolling to make sure you’re showing enough love!
