We look forward to welcoming OHP Envoys, Ambassadors, Benefactors and Founders to a new Ensemble in 2022. We are also working closely with our friends in the drinks industry to bring new exciting flavours for you to savour during the festival.


Picnicking FAQs

Please note that we do not allow customers to eat their own food and drink at the bar seating areas and ask all groups to pre-book a picnic table in either the Terrace or Dutch Garden Lounge. 

Do the tables have tablecloths?

Yes, all picnic tables in the Terrace and Dutch Garden Lounge have sanitised and wipeable tablecloths.

Is there a limit on the number of tables I can purchase?

Due to the need for social distancing, the number of tables we can offer in this space is strictly limited. You will only be able to purchase 1 picnic table for up to 4 guests per performance you are attending. As in previous years, it will not be possible to add additional seats to your table. 

What time will I be able to picnic from?

The time from which your picnic table will be available varies according to the start time of the particular performance. Please check the list below to see when you will be able to access your table.

You are welcome to use your picnic table during the interval, but not after the performance as the theatre site will be closing.
