National Picnic Week aims to provide people with the ideal opportunity to get together over a picnic with advice, tips, recipes and information to make sure everything from the food and drink to the location and surroundings are spot on. Picnicking is one of the UK’s most enjoyable summer traditions, and is a great way of taking advantage of any open spaces in your local area over the warmer months of the year.

The week in June will provide suggestions and inspiration for interesting picnic food and drinks and encourage people to get outdoors and discover the picnic sites available in their local area. Since National Picnic Week was founded a decade ago it has grown significantly and become a staple date in the media calendar. Timed at the peak of picnicking season, broadcasters, radio and television channels are keen to get involved.
