Secret Garden Party wins Medium-Sized award

The Secret Garden Party has walked away with the 'Best Medium-Sized Festival' at the UK Festival Awards 2011.

The independent arts and music festival which takes place in Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire over four days in July was launched by Fred Fellows in 2004.

Hear Fred in the video above talking exclusively to Virtual Festivals about the success of the 2011 edition of the festival.
