Secret Garden Concerts

Secret Garden Concerts is an outdoor festival based in Streatham, South-west London where you can watch an array of international stars in an intimate, magical setting. The idea was borne out of the pandemic when the arts faced an extremely desperate situation. Chris Grist, (founder and artistic director of London Concertante and Secret Garden Concerts), was faced with all the doors of his regular venues being shut, so he literally opened his own doors to his beautiful and magical garden to bring an amazing offering of arts to the local community

Last year was a huge success where 5 concerts quickly became 9, all of which sold out in an extremely short space of time. Since last year’s inaugural festival, it has expanded from purely classical music to include theatre, comedy, jazz and, of course, classical music. This years’ season, comprising 15 events, feature a broad array of outstanding artists, including pop star Nerina Pallot, food critic and jazz pianist Jay Rayner, comedians Sara Pascoe and Angela Barnes, the Brodsky Quartet, jazz musicians Jason Rebello, Tim Garland and the Sam Leak Trio, the Pip Utton Theatre Company, and, of course, London Concertante.

Grist says “It was an extraordinary experience performing last year, having not performed for so many months – the events were actually extremely emotional for both performers and audience alike. However, one of the greatest legacies of the series was the outstanding sense of community that was engendered by the events. I am so excited that so many exceptional artists have come on board to perform at this year’s series – we couldn’t be more excited to welcome these amazing performers, and of course audience, back into our wonderful garden.”

The festival runs from Friday 30th July to Sunday 12th September
