Big Picnic 2017

We hope you’ll all be able to join us at our Big Picnic community festival again this year, on Sunday 18th June, 12pm – 4pm.

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 a family-friendly fun packed affair.

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 and on hay bales, relax and enjoy the beautiful view from the park.

Current stall holders are:

  • Southwark Brewery
  • Comptoir Gourmand bakery
  • The Bridge Lounge pub
  • Fair Community House Services & Shad Thames residents association
  • Bermondsey Street Bees
  • Gavin Jones Ltd gardening & Potters Fields Park Trust
  • Quay Players Theatre
  • Holly and Lil pet shop
