Summer Garden Party
June 22 at 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm£12.50
This year's summer garden party will take place in our traditional location, the Secret Garden in Kemptown. We can promise drinks, canapes, very good conversation with RS friends and, just this year, the secret tunnel will be accessible during the garden party and there will be the opportunity to enjoy William Pye's amazing water sculptures, presently being exhibited there.
"The Secret Garden originally belonged to no 32 Sussex Square which was bought by its first owner, Lawrence Peel, younger brother of the Prime Minister, in 1830. Several of the grand houses in the square had extensive gardens, each of which was accessed through a tunnel leading from the appropriate house. The Secret Garden is now the only remaining one of these. It is ‘secret’ because it is an oasis, a delightful walled garden hidden from view, in the midst of suburban Kemp Town. Originally a 'pleasure garden', it led to a kitchen garden beyond." (from The Secret Garden website)
We hope for fine weather and look forward to seeing many of you there.
Tickets, which include canapés and one free drink from the bar, are now available for purchase:
