The Good Season has finally arrived and we are ready to start our hugely successful Picnics series of events!

Taking advantage of London fantastic parks and of warmer days, this will be a chance to meet old and new friends, experiment with the latest creations from your kitchen (but a bag of chips will do just fine!) or prove your skills at volleyball – failing all this, we are sure you will be a master in chatting and just chill out in a very relaxing environment.

We start the 2014 picnic season Sunday 27 July with a picnic in the very central and charming Regent's Park, in a special position in the very middle of the park and which is very easy to reach.
Last year over 160 people attended this event – have a look at the photos here : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151725400216321.1073741841.77069546320&type=3

We will bring Prosecco and cherries, all you need to do is to make sure you bring your smile, a sun lotion … and invite all your friends – there is no limit to the capacity in the Park!

And if you like playing, bring along your guitar, just as these Italians of London did last year : watch the video here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8SBEbzAdLA

As always at our Picnics, there is no entrance fee and everyone, of any Nationalities are most welcome.

    A very pleasant Sunday afternoon, spent with Italian speaking people, either native or not. The atmosphere and the venue for the meetup were absoluty enjoyable and we were even blessed by a warm and almost fair and sunny day, besides weather forecasts. I will do my best to join the next one gathering in a park.

    Hi there! I'm coming with my Italian flag, so I hope that then will be easier for everybody to find the spot! I'll be there at 2PM, so please let me know how I can find who is already there (e.g. if you have some particular details that can help to recognise the group from the other) or just by waving your hands, if you see my bag with my flag!!

    July 27

    • Mirco G.

      Eh eh, cerco di fare un buon uso di questa bandiera visto com'è andato il mondiale!! ;-)

  • Alex A.

    Ciao!, is it going ahead or is it going to be postponed? Please confirm either way :-)

    1 · July 27

    • Giacomo O.

      Yeah the weather is ok today, even if it's not "officially" happening we can meet up there anyway. Let's go to the spot that is pointed in the map!

      July 27

    • Andrea

      Anna I hope everyone has got the same map direction I was given a few weeks ago which is near the Cumberland gate overlooking those Nash neoclassical villas. See you there.

  • giulia

    Da quale entrata di regent's park si raggiunge il picnic?

    July 26

    • Andrea

      No problem Giulia, anche tu in bici allora? Quindi se esci dal Regents canal all'altezza di London zoo segui l'outer circle in direzione Camden e continua giu fino al Cumberland gate che rimane sulla tua destra prima di arrivare al bivio con Chester road. Cumberland gate e' piuttosto piccolino quasi come un buco nella siepe quindi fai attenzione a non oltrepassarlo. Ci vediamo li allora. Ciao

      July 27

    • giulia

      No purtroppo,"urban hicker:-)"grazie x le info e a dopo!

      July 27

  • Floriana

    Ciao Giancarlo nel caso dovessi arrivare dopo vi trovo nel posto indicato sulla mappa?

    July 27

  • Laura B.

    Ma è regent's park o golders green park? Perche' la vostra mappa mostra golders green park, ma l'annuncio dice regent's. Sono confusa.

    July 26

  • Giancarlo P.

    Yes, you guessed, once again, we regret to announce the Picnic is postponed to next week, Sunday 27 July 2014 due to uncertainty in the weather conditions, with good chances of rain in the afternoon today (as per BBC and Metoffice forecast)

    As organisers of these events, we need to take in account what the majority of the people require. Contrary to what you may see in the comments below, the vast majority of people (especially the Italians) would not attend this type of event if there are strong chances of rain. Converting this event to a pub session is not what this event was meant for. If you really are interested in meeting other members of our Network, please attend our other events, like the Aperitifs. We just had one last night in Clapham which was excellent.
    Finally, we wish to remind - once again - that ITALIANS OF LONDON counts over 30,000 members and the group here on Meetup accounts only for a very tiny fraction of our Community.

    Thank you
    Giancarlo

    • Carolyn

      I agree with you Giancarlo. I'm really looking forward to this event but these days I'm finding the heat and humidity a bit much, so I for one am content with your decision. Until next time :-)

  • Giancarlo P.

    We regret to announce the Picnic is – once again – postponed to next week, Sunday 20 July 2014 due to uncertainty in the weather conditions, with chances of rain in the afternoon today.

    We would also like to remind attendees that a picnic it is entirely relying on weather conditions, therefore flexibility is required as this event can be moved or postponed with very short notice.

    See you all on Sunday 20 July (hopefully!)

    • Guido

      Shame shame. This is as sunny as it gets around here. We will never have a picnic. Maybe in 2020 due to global warming, Giancarlo?

      1 · July 13

    • Andrea

      You're right Guido, this is the English summer we can't go wasting it away like that just for a few drops of rain. Like Monica suggested if it starts pouring down we can take refuge Into a pub and all get merry.

      July 13

  • Andrea

    Hey Giancarlo are you sure we should present ourselves to the picnic in Regents Park tomorrow, because the weather promises to be positively alluvial unlike last Sunday, so maybe we should come in pairs and take shelter inside an ark, somebody could still bring a guitar to lift up the spirit !

    2 · July 12

  • Joe

    Are you planning to meet near the Regents park station at a certain time before you go the Regents park? If so what time are you planning to meet at the Regent park station?

    What are the directions that one needs to follow to get to the location in Regents Park where you going to have the picnic.

    Any contact name and telephone number available that we can ring in case we come late or cannot find you?

    1 · July 9

    • Andrea

      Good idea Joe, last Saturday I went to meet them in the park before realising it at been cancelled again and didn't know where to look for them.
