Ever fancied having lunch with the likes of Matt d’Ancona? A Tortoise journalist, or a Sunday Times Bestselling author, perhaps? This is your chance. 

For those that want luxury at KITE, our Palladian VIP options allow you to get away from it all and relax in the stunning setting of the house and gardens of Kirtlington Park: a respite from the hustle and bustle of the festival. You’ll indulge with a sit down lunch or supper in the opulent surroundings of Kirtlington House, a Palladian stately home, and the opportunity to converse with a Tortoise journalist and/or a KITE Festival speaker. 

Explore the Palladian options below, and free your mind at KITE.
