A decadent one-night festival of gin, live music, burlesque and fire dancing is returning to the Scorrier House Estate near Redruth next month

Building on the much-loved Secret Gin Garden which appears each year at The Great Estate Festival, the second edition of The Return of the Secret Gin Garden will spring to life with the addition of a new event layout, main stage, headline artists and exciting happenings. Following on from The Great Estate earlier this year, The Return of the Secret Gin Garden will give festival fans the opportunity to once again set up camp in the grounds of Scorrier House for one night only.

Set to headline this year's event is multi-platinum award-winning band The Magic Numbers. The happy English pop-rockers are known for their unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and timeless sound.

Funk royalty The Brand New Heavies will also take to the main stage of The Return of the Secret Gin Garden this August, whilst English indie pop group Loose Salute will bring boy/girl vocals. Other acts to look out for include Mr Tea and The Minions, and the funky Latin beats of Malavita who fuse heaps of percussion, soaring guitars, skanktastic bass lines, punchy horns and soulful female vocals.

As guests wander along winding pathways and stumble across hidden openings, the Secret Gin Garden itself will also play host to a variety of DJ's throughout the August bank holiday evening. With sets scheduled until 2am, guests can look forward to performances within the old walled gardens and leafy corners of the magnificent manor house.

Newly added for 2019 and taking inspiration from The Great Estate, the one-day event will welcome the ever-popular Woodland Silent Disco. Guiding revellers through the enchanted tree-lined gardens of Scorrier House, glistening moonlight, colourful laser beams and a giant disco ball will await late-night party-goers.

Festival guests can also expect burlesque performances from Tallulah Blue, plus a mixture of other theatrical installations.

Tickets for The Return of the Secret Gin Garden are currently on sale priced at £30.00 (plus £2.50 booking fee). Camping is also available with pitches priced at £15.00 (plus £2.50 booking fee). Parking permits and campervan/motorhome/caravan pitches can also be purchased via the website.
