Cultureseekers Summer Picnic!

  • Aug 2, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Saturday 2nd August at 2pm for a Summer Picnic!

About the picnic
The group is quite cosmopolitan with people from all over the world, so the idea is to bring food & drink to the picnic from your country of origin.  Then we will hand round the food so everyone get's to try food from different countries (you will only be able to try other people's food & drink, if you bring some yourself to share around).  I will be bringing plastic plates, cups, and cutlery for everyone to use.

It's also a chance to chat and get to know people in the group in a quiet relaxed setting.

We will be near to the Serpentine Bar & Kitchen overlooking the Serpentine, so we can use the bar's toilets.  If the weather is bad, we will be inside the bar.  We will also probably be sitting on the grass, so feel free to bring along any rugs to sit on.

Lookout for the group sign when you get near the Serpentine Bar:

Hope to see you there!

Robert

    Hi Robert - please advise the group the plans if it rains. Thanks

    August 2, 2014

  • Robert

    Just to remind everyone that if you wish to try other people's food and drink from their countries, you will have to bring some from yours. There are lots of speciality food shops in Covent Garden and/or a local supermarket.

    • Alan H.

      Hi Robert - can we take it this event is still happening come rain or shine?

      August 2, 2014

  • Brigitte B.

    Yes might have to give this a miss in view of the forecast...

    Apparently the Weather Gods were a bit miffed as no one invited them to the picnic ;) so I understand that they're seeking revenge by delegating Mr Heavy Rain Showers to gatecrash our party :( What are the contingency plans?

    August 1, 2014

  • Meredith S.

    Wish I could join you! Lamingtons, ANZAC Biscuits & pavlova would have to be on the list! (well, pavlova might not travel so well...) I wouldn't inflict Vegemite sandwiches on you, though! Enjoy every picnic everyone!!!

    In the interest of fairness, you will only be able to have some of other people's food if you bring some yourself (from your country of origin) for others to enjoy.
