Boutique music festival Secret Garden Party is making 2017 its last year.

We found out everything you need to know about the  its last hoorah.

When is it?

The final festival will take place from Thursday July 20 to Sunday July 23.

Gates open on Thursday at 2pm.

Where is it?

Though it started as 500 friends in a back garden, Secret Garden Party will end on a much grander scale on Mill Hill Field in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

The nearest train station is Huntingdon, though unlike other festivals, organisers have not revealed any plans for transport between the station and the festival site.

There are, however, coaches available directly to the site from 32 locations across the country.

See the festival’s website for more details.

Why is this year the last?

It is not clear exactly why the festival is coming to an end but writing in a statement on Secret Garden Party’s website, its Head Gardener said: “15 years ago I started out with a set of ideas as to what makes a good party and the most perfect venue for it. 

“Much has changed since that first Garden Party, when there was nothing else like it in the UK: Facebook, YouTube and Twitter had yet to be invented and no one knew what a boutique festival was, let alone Glamping.

“Since then, with you always at the heart of it, The Garden Party has defined and redefined outdoor events in the UK; we have all done this together as a collective of truly independent outsiders. 

“I have never compromised our principles and I never will. SGP has always been a beacon of what you can do within those terms and, as imitation (being the sincerest form of flattery) proves, it has set the bar for everyone else going forward.

“But it is exactly because of those principles, and the love for all of you who have made The Garden Party what it is, that I am committing this senseless act of beauty.

“What better way to honour the love that has been given to this project and wholly demonstrate this principle, than going out with a bang.”
