FEAST! Picnic in the Park

01 Jun - 03 Jun

Once again MIA have treated us all to a brilliant weekend of picnics, theatre, circus, music and all kinds of fun around the lake. The sun came out for the whole weekend and it only started to rain after Community Arts North West had provided us with music to dance to all Sunday afternoon at their Exodus Picnic (raising awareness of the cultural richness that refugee populations bring to our region) - a great way to finish the weekend!

Huge respect to all the people that worked so hard to make the FEAST! weekend happen. If you were there, here are some pictures to remind you of some of the fun. Otherwise, see what you missed and don't make the same mistake in the future!

If you have any photos you'd like us to add, please send them to us at feastpics@plattfields.org.
