Pre-order your picnic
This year, Fortnum & Mason will be returning as our Official Picnic Partner. Crafted with the very best seasonal ingredients fresh from Fortnum’s famous Food Halls and packed with summer-ready tipples, four picnic options are available to pre-order now. Make the most of your time in the glorious grounds of Hampton Court Palace by arriving early and starting your summer evening in style.
Enjoy a chilled glass of bubbles or take your pick from a range of refreshments at The Garden Bar in the East Front Gardens. Brand new this year, discover refreshing summer tipples from the Portobello Craft Ale Bar or indulge in gorgeous rosé wines from Provence at the Vins de Provence tasting bar. It wouldn't be summer without an aperol, The Little Orange Van will be serving aperitivo from their bright and beautiful Citreon H Van Bar.
As guests are unable to take food and drink through the Palace due to conservation reasons, you can purchase further drinks from The Theatre Bar to enjoy during the concert.
We recommend that you purchase Theatre Bar Drinks Tokens in advance from The Garden Bar so that you can join the fast-track queue once inside. Please note: A limit of 2 Drinks Tokens per person will apply in line with the drinks policy at The Theatre Bar.
Vins de Provence Tasting Bar
Immerse yourself in Mediterranean sophistication this August and discover gorgeous rosé wines from Provence at the Vins de Provence tasting bar in the East Front Gardens. Take part in their free, 15-minute speed tastings, running every half hour from 6pm under the guidance of TV Wine Expert David Kermode. You'll have the chance to learn about the subtleties of different rosé wines from across the region.
There is nothing like a refreshing pint on a hot summer’s evening and that is why we are thrilled that Portobello Brewery will be joining us on the East Front this year with an amazing craft ale bar.
Showcasing their unique craft ales direct from buzzy West London, our festivalgoers will have an array of mouth-watering draft ales and lagers to choose from. Portobello’s creative portfolio boasts the finest ingredients and is treated with the upmost care and respect, to create modern renditions of our favourite beer styles that are full of flavour and with great drinkability.
Aside from picnics, there is also the option to enjoy food from a number of Street Food offerings. This year we have a delicious selection from The BBQ Dept, Boysterous Oysters, Bubble Waffles, Laurence's Taco Van and Evoke Catering selling pizzas or finish off your meal with an alcoholic ice lolly from WeArePops.
We are certain you won't go hungry or thirsty with our range of pre-concert options.
Entertain in real splendour this summer against the stunning backdrop of the Palace’s East Front Gardens in one of our lavish Waterside Gazebos.
Perfect for entertaining clients or enjoying the evening with friends.
