Eating, shopping and drinking

There will be more delicious street food to graze on than ever before, plus amazing pop-up bars serving tasty tipples, refreshing craft beers and exquisite wines.

With over 100 fantastic brands and producers joining us, they'll be serving everything from mouth-watering cheeses to sausages, brownies to churros, they've got everything to delight even the most committed foodie. Get ready to pick up tasty picnic treats to enjoy against a backdrop of one of Britain's most historic buildings.

Family fun

There's something for everyone, with fun for all the family from face painting, children's arts and crafts, traditional fete games, Shire Horse rides and a whole palace to explore. What better place to spend your Bank Holiday weekend with the whole family?

Bandstand

Soak up the atmosphere and spirit of summer with some feel-good classics at the Bandstand. Pop on your dancing shoes and enjoy musical delights from the Polka Dots & Estrella Duo, who will be bringing Motown, Soul & Disco Themed tunes to the East Front Gardens.

If that wasn't enough, be serenaded by Chris Weeks as he whisks us away on a swing music journey. Plus, for one day only, the ABBA Sisters will be back for an afternoon performance on Sunday 28 August, so gather your very own dynamos to dance, jive and have the time of your life! You'll have the perfect soundtrack for your day full of foodie fun.
