Lovingly inspired by the ethos of the legendary Burning Man, The Secret Garden Party is a temporary community that is as free, irreverent, friendly and engaging as it is possible to be. It is a gathering that exists for only four days - away from cities and schedules, brands and boundaries – founded on an ethos of participation and with the potential to change your life. It is a festival of the arts, where everyone is the artist. You could be a part of it, as we have a pair of tickets to give away, plus the winner and their guest will dine at the festival's Soul Fire Restaurant.
Added to this colourful canvas are some of the finest artists, DJs and musicians in the land; from 2manydjs to Regina Spektor, The Strypes to Django Django via Bastille and Lissie. There are action camps around every corner, art swinging from the trees, colossal arenas dedicated to games and dancing, circus and performance, debates and discussions at the Secret Forum, a lake with a stage at its centre, a pagoda which vibrates with beats all day long, and ceremonies, mass celebrations, rituals and gatherings. The winner will dine in SGP's infamous Soul Fire Restaurant, a haven of nourishment and decadence in the Garden.

Built in 1901 as the display hall for the German company Bechstein Pianos, the Wigmore Hall was seized as enemy property in WWI and sold at auction for a fraction of its value. These days, boasting perfect acoustics, art nouveau decor and an excellent basement restaurant, the 'Wiggy' is one of the world's top chamber music venues and currently hosts around 400 events a year. Programming leans on the classical and Romantic periods. The Monday lunchtime recitals, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, are excellent value, as are the Sunday morning coffee concerts. Musical luminaries who have performed at the Wigmore Hall include Sergey Prokofiev, Shura Cherkassky, Paul Hindemith, Andrés Segovia, Benjamin Britten and Francis Poulenc. Tours of the auditorium, with its famous Art Nouveau mural, and other parts of the building take place during the Open House London event in September.
Venue says: “Booking now for Sep-Dec 2017! Intimate concerts featuring internationally acclaimed classical musicians. Tickets from £15 or less.”
