The Big Picnic Festival

Taking place Sunday 18th June on Potters Fields Park and St John’s Churchyard, this family friendly community festival is not to be missed.

The event is a chance for local residents and Londoners to come together and meet their neighbours over shared picnics. It is held on the same day as the nationwide Big Lunch event and is all about community and fun.

This year there will be a stage hosting local busker acts and performers. There will be lots of stalls with food and drinks and workshops from local social enterprises. We will have face and henna painters and a Punch & Judy stand. Spitafields City Farm will be there with some friendly farm animals for people to meet. There will also be a Pimms stall and Cider tent on the front lawn, for people to sit back in deck chairs, relax and enjoy the beautiful view from the park.

You can find out more on our Big Picnic event page.

Great British Spring Clean 3rd & 4th March

Potters Fields Park Trust is organising two Great British Spring Clean events from the park this year. They will take place on Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th March, 11.00 – 14.00, starting from outside Fratellis Cafe on Potters Fields Park.

We need lots of willing volunteers to help clear up the area so for information and to get involved please contact us here.

The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with one simple ambition. To bring together people from across the country to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastline.

Through March 2017, the GB Spring Clean team want to inspire 500,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. You’ll join an ever growing band of people who have had enough of other people’s litter, are willing to donate their time to help clear it up and want to see an end to littering.
