Picnic In The Park – Sun 28 June

The Friends of Queen’s Park will host Picnic In The Park on Sunday 28 June from midday.












Brighton’s favourite family day out will feature a heady mix of live music and fresh food stalls, together with a wide variety of games and kids entertainments.


On the main stage, the headline act will be Seeker, a soul-pop-acoustic duo based in Brighton, promising lush covers of your favourite soul classics. Their version of Blame It On The Boogie is a gem. Listen out also for the Sussex Jazz Orchestra and the We Bop Choir, both back by popular demand.


“We’re thrilled to have so much local music talent represented on stage this year, with Seeker giving us the perfect end to a sunny summer afternoon,” says FQP’s Johnny Webb.

The main stage will be hosted by guitar man Tim Barton, returning after last year’s lively turn behind the mic.

Kids fun will include children’s entertainer Al Start, a Punch & Judy show, bouncy castle, gymnastics exhibition, and coconut shy.

Ann’s Raffle already promises some jackpot prizes. FQP’s Ann Ewings has a fantastic record of persuading the city’s merchants to donate fabulous gifts that raise money for this annual raffle. She is already promising a stunning Advance Helicopters voucher, worth £145, for a 20 minute ride over Brighton. Wow.  Thanks to Advance Helicopters of Shoreham-by-Sea for their generosity.
