Feast on a delicious range of food and beverages from our Gourmet Food Market. With over 40 food trucks on offer, choose from Thai street food, crepes, dumplings, hotdogs, and sweet treats.


You’re also welcome to bring a picnic with all your own favourites,  a picnic blanket or camp chair so you can park up on the grass.  Seating will also be available.

After something a bit more special? Pre-order an amazing hamper to pick up on the night – think marinated chicken Maryland, kaffir lime and ginger drizzle, two fresh salads and a dark chocolate cake with salted caramel mousse to finish. Available for groups of any size, you can order yours when you purchase your tickets, or as an add-on closer to the time.
