Festival Picnics

We are delighted to announce that our festival picnics are back for 2018!  Make the most of your time in the glorious grounds of Hampton Court Palace by arriving early and starting your summer evening with one of our new Festival Picnics. 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.

About the Picnics…

The Festival Picnic is four courses of the finest produce that will tantalise the taste buds. Each picnic serves two people and costs £80.00, including a bottle of fine wine, or if you fancy a bubbly treat you can spoil yourself with the Champagne PIAFF picnic for £110.00. 

Festival Picnics can be purchased at the time of booking your concert tickets, or separately at any time afterwards, each artist has an approximate three-day cut off date.  If you've already booked your festival tickets and want to add a picnic, please follow the relevant link below. 

Your picnic will then be available for collection from the East Front Gardens where you can enjoy your scrumptious spread in the regal surroundings before taking your seat in Base Court for the evening’s performance. 

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

About British Fine Foods 

British Fine Foods was established to help support the best artisan producers in the British Isles, and make their products available to customers across the country.  Andrew, Pam & the team are passionate about good food and find nothing more enjoyable than sharing wonderful fare with friends and family.  With more cheesemakers in the UK than in France, Scottish smoked salmon and fresh meat unrivalled elsewhere, Britain now has some of the best food in the world and we are delighted to bring this to you with one of the Festival Picnics. 

British Fine Foods are picnic suppliers for Wimbledon, The Epsom Derby, Royal Ascot, events at Goodwood such as Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival, the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, Proms In Hyde Park and Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, so we are confident the picnic created for Hampton Court Palace Festival will be perfect for our audience. 

About Champagne PIAFF

Last year we were delighted to introduce you to Champagne PIAFF, one of the city’s best kept secrets, on their UK debut. We are sure that everyone met the PIAFF team and enjoyed their champagne will agree with Luxury London Magazine that premium quality Champagne PIAFF stands proudly on their list of the best bubblies for every occasion.

As well as being able to include a bottle of Champagne PIAFF in your picnic, you are all invited to visit the PIAFF team around their traditional cellar table again this year. Let them show you the art of sabrage as they use our PIAFF sabre to elegantly open the bottles, while the friendly PIAFF staff answer all your questions about the magical process that starts in the vineyards of Champagne and ends in your glass on the lawns at Hampton Court Palace.
