Leave no trace

  • The Secret Garden Party  is a Leave No Trace event. This means you should leave the site EXACTLY the way you found it when you arrived.
  • YOU are collectively responsible for the state of the site.  We are trying to encourage collective responsibility for the land. If you brought it with you, please take it away at the end of the show.
  • If you see that your neighbour doesn’t understand the leave no trace policy, have a quiet word and explain it to them nicely. It will make it much nicer for everyone.
  • All cold drinks at SGP are served in reusable cups. Please make sure you don’t throw them in the bin
  • All food and hot drinks at SGP are served in compostable containers – and cutlery/napkins are also compostable. When you’ve finished food or drink from our traders, throw everything into the “compost” bin
  • Oh and by the way…our generators are all powered by recycled cooking oil…
  • Your litter bond will be refunded on presentation of one bag of General Waste and one bag of Recycling at the Litter Bond points.
  • Recyclable waste at SGP is the same as at home. Please put cardboard, plastics, metals, and paper into the recycling bins.
  • Please make sure you bring a reusable water bottle. You will not be able to purchase sealable single-use water bottles on-site. Canned water will be available from bars.
  • It’s vital that you take your tent home with you and re-use it, as this is one of the biggest sources of landfill waste at music festivals. If your tent is completely broken after the festival, please pack it up and drop it off at one of our waste stations.
