Unexpected Picnic
6th August, 1pm – 5pm
Cove Park

In celebration of our Unexpected Gardens project as part of the nationwide Dandelion programme, Cove Park will host a picnic on Saturday 6th August with food, music and activities for families. There will be scheduled events, drop-in workshops and participatory installation across all art forms and across our 50-acre site which you will be free to explore.

Joining Cove Park’s commissioned Unexpected Gardens artists Siôn ParkinsonHannah Brackston and Rudy Kanhye, are artists Vicky Dale, Caitlin Dick, Jessica Kerr, and Niki Sammon who have designed art installations and activities for the event.

This event is intended to be a community picnic and sharing event – we will be sharing the work of our artists, our site, food, music and creative experiences. Food artist and culinary designer, Rudy Kanhye, will provide tasting experiences, and you are welcome to also bring your family’s favourite dish to share amongst friends.

Dandelion is a celebration of growing – if you are able, bring along any home-grown produce or favourite recipes – there will be a recipe wall showcasing our community’s favourite recipes and will be shared with all attendees after the event.

To RSVP, visit our Eventbrite.
