About Midnight Garden @ Inner Temple Gardens

Exclusive parties are available at this venue

The newest most exciting venue in the city for Christmas 2007! This year The marquee at the Inner Temple Gardens will be turned into a magical midnight garden. Leave the grime and bustle of central London behind and stop into a magical midnight garden. Guests will be greeted at the impressive wrought iron gates & then walk down a wide avenue of trees filled with lights, creating a sparkling canopy. As the drinks flow from the bar, the centrepiece of the reception area will be a wonderful pond and fountain. The pond edge will shine silver in the light and be filled with beautiful pink lilies. A beautiful songbird will be singing to guests perched on a silver swing. Later the curtains will be drawn back to reveal a magical night sky with an enormous shining moon hanging over the stage & dinner will be served. After dinner guests can chill out in their magical surroundings or dance the night away to the discotheque.
