The Secret Garden Party is an annual independent arts and music festival which takes place in Abbots Ripton near Huntingdon. This location is on part of the grounds of a Georgian farm house and has its own lake, river and landscaped gardens. The festival was launched by Fred Fellowes in 2004[1] as an alternative to the established mainstream music festivals. Since its inception the festival has increased in popularity and size,[2] and has grown from one stage and 1,000 visitors in 2004, to more than 15 stages and 26,000 revellers in 2011.
