Picnic was a series of three site-specific performances created for Burslem, Longton and Tunstall parks in Stoke-on-Trent in 2013.

The performances reflected the unique history and character of each park and were created with park users as well as professional artists. The Picnics featured live music and original songs from Mr Jolly and his Topsy-Turvy Band of Time-Travelling Tunesmiths; sound installations from Dan Fox; fresh pizza-making from Bread In Common; animals hidden in the undergrowth; poems on laundry hung out to dry; and lots more to create an afternoon of entertainment in the park.

Picnic was part of the Taster Menu for Appetite, the Stoke Creative People and Places programme.
