Introducing The Wild Meadows. The Wild Meadows is nestled in the stunning SGP home but offers a more relaxed environment in which to fully engage, play and rewind. With a 7 night stay there is plenty of time to become immersed in the true natural beauty of our fields and woodland. The party weekend will bring an exciting programme of music & family fun, with something for everyone. Back to nature. Get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and reconnect with nature. Explore ancient woodland, trek through the fields or take a dip in one of our lakes. Or better yet, take out a paddle-board and soak up the sun. Dine out under the forest canopy at our Woodland Banquet table, or take your own picnic into the fields. Fun for feral children. Secret Garden Party has always been about connecting with your inner child but The Wild Meadows takes that to the next level. Discover all new adventures designed for families, like forestry camp, immersive theatre, night-time woodland trails and much more. We’re also planning to bring back fan-favourites from the early years of SGP, like space-hopper racing, The Dog Show and science workshops. The bestest sleepover. Pitch your own tent, pull up in a live-in vehicle or book one of our snug bell tents. When the sun sets on The Wild Meadows, naughty children come out to play. Get comfy around the campfire, watch the stars by moonlight and enjoy our evening story-telling and entertainment programme. On the weekend, grab a hot chocolate at our Coco Ceremony, toast a marshmallow and watch the burn. Late night parties for “grown ups”. After-hours fun and dancing, for the Big Kids, will be provided by your favourite SGP venues. The Pagoda* returns for The Wild Meadows, with its usual blend of disco and electronic music. Or if you just fancy a drink and an old fashioned knees up, The Prize Cock public house will cater for your every need until the wee hours. Take it easy. When you need that break from the hustle and bustle of modern life, fear not; the Herb Garden has what you need. Chill-out at hammock city, come along to free morning yoga & wild swimming, or book a massage with one of our wellness partners. Camp Rules!! Leave no trace. Play nicely. Dogs allowed.
