Picnicking and Dining

Marquee booking

Find out more about our weather-proof options.

Garden Marquee

Situated in the Orchard near the River Cottage Deli, the Garden Marquee is an under-cover option with views across the gardens.

The Garden Marquee offers shelter against the elements during inclement weather, and the panels will be opened on warmer days, creating a shady retreat from the sunshine.

Spaces in the Garden Marquee can be reserved. Please phone the Box Office on +44(0)1273 815000 to book.

Greenhouse marquee

The Greenhouse Marquee is adjacent to the Archive Gallery and the main car park. It accommodates up to 200 customers, and the panels will be opened during warmer weather. Picnic tables and chairs are provided. This is a free marquee but spaces can be reserved for £5 per person.

Given the limited availability of picnic tables on the Upper Circle and in the free marquee, we recommend you bring your own dining furniture with you where possible to avoid disappointment. Subject to availability, it’s also possible to reserve picnic furniture , porter service and picnics themselves through Glyndebourne’s on-site caterers.
