Friends & Friend’s Friends Picnic 2023 (Year 21!)

It’s time for my annual picnic in Regents Park!

Called “Friends & Friend’s Friends Picnic”, it is held every year – and this is YEAR 21 !!!

In a world that seems to be increasingly hell-bent on strife, discord and hatred, we need to grab any opportunity to come together, meet new friends and create a community based on togetherness, acceptance and LOVE ️.

This year it is to be held on Sunday, 20th August 2023

The idea is to get a lot of friends and their friends together. I invite all my friends and they invite all their friends and they invite their friends and so on……and before we know it, there will be 100’s of friends, new and old, having a lot of fun.

Everyone is invited to bring their own food and drinks plus some extra to share. We will also be playing football, frisbee etc for fun, so bring those trainers and sports gear.

Children are most welcome. If you haven’t got any, borrow some for the day:-).

I recently got some Hula Hoops so it should be entertaining watching some people have a go!

There are lots of things you can do in Regents Park. There is boating on the lake, heronry and waterfowl collections to visit, and of course the world-famous Rose Garden.

We will also be having some African drumming and singing. Bring along any musical instrument that you would like to play.

Please note that this picnic will be happening no matter what the weather is on the day!

This is the 21st year running that I have organised this Friends and Friend’s Friends Picnic. It is now an annual event and is held every year in July or August.
