Thousands of hopefuls applied online for a free ticket to the exclusive, one-off event produced by Jiggery Pokery and Mischief PR.

Those lucky enough to win a ticket were greeted by a multi-coloured club house, psychedelic English garden flowers and typical British picnic food.

T4 presenter Rick Edwards hosted the event, with comic actor Matt Horne spinning the summer tunes while guests queued up to try their arm at lawn bowling.

Special four-wheeled art commissions were on display, including a grass image covered Corsa, which housed the event scoreboard, and a convertible Astra Twintop stocked with free ice creams and lollies.

Later on, band Man Like Me, gave an exclusive performance, followed by legendary DJ Toddla T who finished off the day with a chill out soundtrack.
