About

Spend a perfect afternoon relaxing on the lawns of Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, as a selection of artists play in picturesque royal surroundings every Saturday throughout the summer months.

Indulge in a drink and sweet treat from our award-winning café as you settle back to listen. Or bring a picnic, kick off your shoes and enjoy with friends and all the family.

During the 20-minute interval, take a stroll around the 100 acre gardens in summer bloom, included in your ticket. Or upgrade your ticket and visit the inside of Northern Ireland's only royal residence.
