Urban Garden Party

This year the famous Garden Marlborough Garden Party took another twist: we’re spalshed out and celebrated in the centre of town at a rooftop venue! 

The heart of Blenheim has seen some stylish and creative innovations over the past year – including exciting public art, new planting and landscaping – and this year the Garden Party is going urban.

While repeating the longer format of last year, 2016 saw a new approach to catering, with Feast Merchants providing multiple food stations and a range of delicious options with minimal waiting. Partygoers enjoyed food on arrival, along with superb bubbles from the premium producers that make up the Méthode Marlborough group. Food offerings using Marlborough’s best produce continued through the evening, accompanied by fabulous local Wither Hills wines.

Entertainment included a floral-inspired catwalk show, with models moving among art works created by local contributors around our “Naturally Wired” theme. Lucky bidders in the ever-popular annual charity Art Auction could go home with an original and distinctive piece of work, with all proceeds helping support Garden Marlborough horticultural scholarships and community projects.

Great conversations with our presenters and supporters were enjoyed, a range of live music from the unique band rotunda, ample seating, cool lighting and much more, all in a groovy garden environment with an urban vibe, right in the heart of town.
This was a special and unique evening, with something for everyone. Watch this space for details of out 2017 event…
