What is a promenade?
In the mode of the promenade concerts of the 18th century, take a turn around our very own pleasure garden: The Tea Lawn. This unique evening of entertainment is inspired by the promenade concerts which were popular in the 18th century where guests would attend venues such as Vauxhall Gardens for an evening of entertainment. Feel free to make your appearance in your most resplendent party clothes - or even in an outfit suitable for 1768! Masks will be provided.
