On Friday night we were very fortunate to have perfect Weather for our annual Friends' Garden Party - such a contrast to last year’s rain! And the Duke and Duchess were here ready to greet our Friends as they arrived.

Around 2000 Friends relaxed and picnicked on the Salisbury lawn. There was dancing to the brass and jazz bands, family games of football, frisbee, hide and seek and even swingball! Professor Shell the magician was a popular addition this year, and children went home with a variety of balloon models.

The fireworks, which were set to music, ended the evening on a lovely note, although it felt like nobody really wanted to go home! We're already thinking about next year's event and how to make it even more special.
