*LAWNDAZE 2017 *

Held in a secret location in south London, Lawndaze features a prime selection of artists and record labels including legendary DJ Bill Brewster and a live AV set with projections from up and coming Bristol band The Crisis Project.

This out-of-the-ordinary party takes place in a beautiful 18th century manor, with walled gardens, a heated swimming pool and wood-fired hot tub.

Expect a gourmet afternoon tea, poolside disco, street food, games and more surprises yet to be revealed. As day turns to night, the party will move from the pool and gardens into the house where particularly curious guests may find a hidden door leading to an Enchanted Forest…

*This is a charity event. All profits from the event will go to Macmillan Cancer support*

Planning your journey

The venue is located near Orpington. The exact address and postcode will be emailed to guests on purchasing a ticket. 

Getting there:
 
Train

 
The quickest way to get to Lawndaze from London is by train. The nearest train station is Orpington, which you can reach from Charing Cross, Victoria or Cannon Street on the overland and takes 25-39 minutes depending on which station you leave from.
 
There will be a free coach shuttle service running from Orpington station to the venue from 12:30pm-3:30pm, so if you would like to make use of it we’d advise arriving at the station within those times (you may have to wait 10 minutes or so for the coach to return from the house).

If you wish to arrive later than 3:30pm, there is a taxi rank at the station.

What to bring

  • Swimwear + Towel  
  • Cash

The bar does accept card payments (except Amex) but please bring cash for street food vendors. All games are free to play except the Human Fruit Machine jackpot and raffle for Macmillan which will be £10 a go and features some amazing prizes including a long weekend stay in a French chalet in 2018,  a magnum of vintage Louis Roderer champagne and an amethyst and gold necklace from Kinvara Law worth £320. 

 

What not to bring

  • Your own food and alcohol (all will be available on site)
  • Children (the event is for big kids aged 18+)
     

What to wear
 
The dress code is eccentric, but it is totally up to you how eccentric you want to go. We are not outfit Nazis; if you want to channel Mark Zuckerberg and wear a plain grey tee so you can focus on the more serious business of croquet then that is absolutely fine! If you prefer dressing up to get you into the party spirit, then we’ve put together a moodboard of ideas for you below. 

If you have a question we haven’t answered, feel free to email us at:  afternoon@afternoon-delight.co.uk

See you on the lawn!
