For those looking for an afternoon of glamour in stunning surroundings, then the Gleneagles Glorious Garden Party is promising that and more.

Launched last year, the second Gleneagles Glorious Garden Party will be held on the lawns of the hotel on Saturday 1 June.

With beautiful views of the Orchil Hills, guests can relax and enjoy an afternoon of Champagne, sunshine and sport – much like the 1920s summers at the hotel.

The main event of the day will be a legends tennis match featuring former Wimbledon players, Pat Cash and Greg Rusedski who will play a championship set on the Gleneagles outdoor courts.

In the sporting spirit of days gone by, the tennis stars will play the first few sets with vintage wooden rackets, and the match will be umpired by Judy Murray.

To add to the party atmosphere, JP Cooper – one of UK’s fastest-rising talents, will be performing tracks from his latest album, Raised Under Grey Skies.

As well as live music, guests will be able to play croquet on the lawn or cool down with a gin and tonic ice pop.

The Garden Party will begin with a free-flowing Champagne reception for guests on the hotel terrace with a live jazz band and canapes showcasing the finest Scottish ingredients.

The famous Gleneagles Afternoon Tea will be served before the match unfolds, with a special selection of products from the Gleneagles & Co artisan food range.

Guests can also look forward to a centrepiece cake with seasonal Scottish berries created by Gleneagles Executive Pastry Chef, Phil Skinazi.

Sharan Pasricha, Founder and CEO of Ennismore, said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting our Glorious Garden Party once again this year.

“When Gleneagles first opened in the 1920s, it was the place for people to come and celebrate the great outdoors. We’re keeping this spirit alive by toasting the start of the summer season in the best way we know how.”

Tickets are priced at £200 per person and include the champagne reception, afternoon tea, entertainment, and the legends tennis match. To book tickets, please visit the hotel’s website.
