Why not soak up the atmosphere before the performance by having a leisurely picnic in the beautiful surroundings of St. James’s Park! These picnics can be pre-ordered when purchasing your tickets for your chosen performance.

Just bring your printed ticket to the museum on Birdcage Walk from 3pm onwards on the day of your chosen performance to collect your chilled picnic. 

All proceeds from these picnics go directly towards supporting the work of The Guards Museum.

Why not order the music on a CD so you can listen to it all again? Order when purchasing your tickets and pick up the CD when you arrive on Horse Guards Parade. Other CDs are also available to purchase when you are selecting your tickets and they will be available as you arrive before the show.
