Did you miss out on ordering food for your show? No worries, you can still order food to be delivered via Uber Eats or Deliveroo. Just make sure you give the specific drop off location to be outside the gardens, you’ll have to head out of the gardens to grab it but you can bring it back in and enjoy your meal with the show.
