Building on the success of last year’s Big Lunch, the Great Get Together will be the perfect opportunity to join your neighbours, friends and family for a huge picnic to kick start a fantastic summer at the Park. The Great Get Together at the Park forms part of a nationwide event in partnership with the Jo Cox Foundation to bring communities together to celebrate connections and commonality.

Come to the Park and celebrate London’s diverse communities. Expect to see a main stage with a variety of exotic performances and an area dedicated to dance and music, with the likes of African drumming, Newham Community Choir, Stratford Poetry, local acoustic performances and much more!

There will also be a storytelling tent, hosted by  Stratford Library and Discover Storytelling centre, with a range of interactive storytelling sessions and book corners.

Enjoy plenty of roaming acts, from stilt walkers to circus-style performers, then get stuck in with various arts and crafts activities.

Indulge in a homemade picnic or treat yourself with the worldwide cuisine which will be available, including: Eve's Caribbean kitchen, Nonno Luigis pizza, Babur Indian, Akindo Japanese and more!

Burn off your big lunch with a go on the 60m athletic track which will host an egg and spoon race, sack races, fathers races and more.

Keep your eye out for more information on what is guaranteed to be an action-packed day!
