New Meetup: Picnic / Free World Music Festival, Hyde Park

From: ACM
Sent on: Tuesday, June 22, 2010 2:43 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The London Arts & Culture Meetup!

What: Picnic / Free World Music Festival, Hyde Park

When: Saturday, July 10,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Hyde Park

Since summer is now 'officially' here, we thought it would be a great time for group members to gather together in the open air, catch some rays* and enjoy each other's company with a nice summer picnic on Hyde Park.

Since the plan is for this to be very much a 'member-driven' event, it would be great if attendees could bring along food, drink, 'entertainment', big smiles, etc. to share with others and help make it a most enjoyable day / pleasurable experience for everyone (or something)

The picnic will also coincide with this year's World City Music Village festival, Europe?s longest running festival of world cultures. For further info about the festival/line-up see the links below.

Look forward to seeing lots of you there!

* Sunshine / fine weather is not guaranteed (after all you know how unpredictable the English weather is ;)
