The 2018 theme is the World Cup, so children of all ages are encouraged to wear their favourite football shirt and take part in races where they can win a participation medal.

After the disputed 2017 tug of war result (when the men sneaked a cheeky last minute victory over the women) a 2018 return grudge match is eagerly awaited.

Picnic in the Park is free entry, however a small charge will apply for some activities. So come along and enjoy the afternoon with us! » Less
