  • Picnic in the park

    • Come and help us celebrate our 10th anniversary!

      This will be a relaxed, low-key event. We are unable to provide food (other than cake), so please take a picnic or bring some cash to buy food from a street food van. Please be aware that this event won’t have any rides or attractions; instead, there will be a rolling programme of performances by local community groups between approx. 11.30am and 2pm. Please bring a blanket or some camping chairs. The park has open access, so there will be members of the public and dogs present.

      Tickets are free; please book your place so that we know how much cake to buy!
