The Festival Garden
Our much loved city-centre oasis is the perfect place to catch up with friends and family in a relaxed outdoor social setting. It plays host to a mouth-watering selection of local food makers alongside an exciting array of drinks options. It’s a chilled family space during the day that transforms into a bustling festival hub when the sun goes down.
The Queen of Flanders
Our spectacular double-decker spiegeltent that has to be seen to be believed. Returning to the UK following it’s first ever appearance in 2021, the stunning art deco themed tent is one of the largest of its kind int he world. Adorned with ornate stained glass, wodd panelling, private booths and red velvet seating, the Queen is the perfect place to spend a night out with friends or catch some extraordinary shows for the whole family.
The name spiegeltent comes from the Dutch for mirror tent and they trace their roots back to Belgium in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century where they served as touring dancehalls and event spaces, a role they still excel at more than 100 years later.
The Queen of Flanders will play host to some of our larger shows including our spectacular headliners and can seat up to 1,000 guests. Make your visit extra special by selecting VIP tickets when booking to get priority entry to pick your favourite seats.
The venue has level access suitable for wheelchairs.
Situated high above the Garden, the Treehouse is an exciting performance and social space which will play host to a selection of intimate shows, events and celebrations. Equipped with relaxed seating and a well-stocked bar, the Treehouse is the perfect place to soak up the festival atmosphere and look out over the Garden.
The Treehouse also has level access suitable for wheelchairs via a lift.
The Main Stage
For the special summer moments, the Garden transforms into an outdoor festival space to watch big names and events in person or on the giant screen. In 2021 we welcomed the Last Night of the Proms, BBC One’s Euro 2020 finals coverage, an exclusive Ed Sheeran live screening to name a few.
