Food & Drink

Pre-show drinks

A range of summer drinks and snacks will be available from the bars in the East Front Gardens. Enjoy a refreshing beer, wine, cider, soft drink or Pimm’s from one of the 4 open-air bars.  

The Theatre Bar serves beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks which you can take into the auditorium. To save time, pre-purchase drinks from the Garden Bar on the East Front. 

Festival Picnic

This year we have teamed up with British Fine Foods to bring you the tastiest picnic yet. Relax and soak up the pre-concert atmosphere while sharing and indulging in seasonal mouth-watering food from the most talented of producers Britain has on offer.

Please note, your picnic ticket does not give you entry into the event.


Waterside Gazebos

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.


The Viking Stage

This year we introduced an acoustic stage in the East Front Gardens before the evening's concert. The new Viking Stage brought new and emerging acoustic acts providing musical accompaniment to your summer evening. FIND OUT MORE
