Summer party in the park 

We’ve had the rain, so now it’s time for the sun to come out and what better way to celebrate summer than to come to The Friends’ party in the park. The date is Tues. 18 July. The time is 6-8pm and the place is the marquee at the east end of the Dutch Garden. Access is from the Dutch Garden only.

There will be refreshing Pimm’s fruit cup, tasty canapés and good company, all with the lovely view of the Dutch Garden summer planting. We are most grateful to James Clutton, CEO of Opera Holland Park, for allowing us once again to borrow their marquee on the raised terrace to the east of the Dutch Garden. Come rain or shine, we will be protected from anything the weather will throw at us.

This is the one event of our year that is only open to Friends and their immediate guests, but not the general public. Do come and celebrate with us! The car park is free after 6.30pm.

Tickets, at £25 each, can be booked online HERE.
