Game, set and match!
3rd – 16th July
Kicking off the line-up on Monday 3rd July, the Mailbox’s luxurious Urban Room will be transformed into a beautiful summer garden, complete with artificial grass, deck chair seating and TV screens so visitors can sit back and watch sporting events throughout the summer, including the eagerly anticipated Wimbledon tournament.

Alongside this, Tom’s Kitchen Deli will be serving up a delicious selection of summer treats, including the classic strawberries and cream, Pimm’s and its usual freshly prepared and seasonal daily menu of sandwiches, salads, homemade cakes, coffees and Prosecco.
