The Secret Garden is one of our favourite childhood books, so we were super excited when we heard about the new secret garden inspired pop-up that is making its return to OXO2 this summer. Get ready for another year of summer cocktails and picnics treats by the river Thames.
Lined with kitsch garden décor, the whimsical ‘outdoor’ atmosphere will leave you thinking you’ve left the capital behind and are in a sunny suburbia, even though you’re really in the heart of London! For two weeks in August, the Garden Gate will be a safe haven for humans and garden gnomes alike. Speaking of our miniature friends, OXO2 are offering a rather strange, but pretty hilarious drinks deal. If you bring a garden gnome to the pop-up, you can exchange them for a complimentary glass of wine or bottle of beer. Your gnome will be offered a mini pint of beer before being whisked off to join his mates at the Gnome shelf of fame. Be aware though, that Gnome rules apply – pixies, elves and dwarves are not gnomes. A proper grown-up garden gnome, old enough to drink and leave home, never measures less than six inches in height! This is serious business you know.
So raid your grandma’s garden and collect some gnomes, then cash them in for a free drink while soaking up the summer vibes at Garden Gate – London’s new not-so-secret garden pop up featuring tasty cocktails and summertime vibes #RollingWithTheGnomies
The Garden Gate pop-up at OXO2 runs from the 13th to 30th August.
