Picnic at the Palace exclusive evening event
ON Thursday, July 30, from 6pm-9pm, The Bishop’s Palace in Wells is holding a Picnic at the Palace evening event.
The gardens will be open to any ticket or membership holder, or anyone who wishes to purchase a ticket or membership on the night, to enjoy exclusive access outside of normal opening hours.
The Palace is offering a luxury picnic (full details on the Palace website), which must be pre-booked, at £18.95 per head; this will include a range of local delicacies, fresh sides, savouries and desserts. Drinks can also be pre-booked. The cafe will be open during the event for cold drinks and snacks.
The South Lawn will have tables and chairs set up, but visitors are welcome to take their own chairs and picnic blankets.
Luxury picnics need to be pre-booked on the Palace website or by telephone by 5pm on Monday, July 27, and collected between 6pm-7pm on the evening of the event.
In line with Covid-secure guidelines, if the event is extremely popular, priority entry will be given to those with pre-booked picnics, and visitors are asked not to take their own food and drink on site.
