Every Wednesday evening in July.
The Garden Café will be serving food and drink; Thirsty will be providing a bar each evening and Jack's Gelato will be serving homemade ice-cream on the Main Lawn. Visitors are also welcome to picnic.
Music begins at 6.15pm, lasting approx one hour.
Visitors are welcome to stay on and enjoy the Garden until 8pm when the gates will close.
