Natasha Franks previews The Secret Garden Party, which will be held on Saturday, 26th September. 

Seeking a break from charity balls or riotous nights at Club 601? The annual Lumsden Club Secret Garden Party presents a middle ground between a wild time and a lie-in. Held at the Cambo Estate (just a little ways east of St Andrews), SGP is a garden party that evolves into a music festival. Featuring drinks, garden games, and loud music, the vibe is more laid-back — guests often sporting Coachella inspired fashion. 

The all-female Lumsden Club seeks to support women’s and children’s charities and, in their words, “to promote the arts through hands-on volunteering and fundraising events.” To this end, money raised through SGP will go towards Lumsden’s chosen charities: Fife Women’s Aid and The Dolam House in Namibia. The former provides aid to local women and children who are victims of domestic abuse, while the latter provides support to Namibian children affected by HIV / AIDS.

SGP will be held from 7-11pm on Saturday, 26 September. Tickets may be purchased online from the Lumsden Club’s website.
