Queenscroft Park Picnic. Outdoors in a park, adults and children hold hands as if in a procession. They are all smiling

Come along to Queenscroft Park for a fun family day out! Grab your picnic blanket and a scotch egg or two and enjoy an afternoon of performance from local community groups.

Enjoy the true sound of summer with Endurance Steel Orchestra – a passionate steel pan ensemble from South London!

Guinness World Record holding Hula Hoop troupe The Majorettes will be demonstrating their incredible skills and then helping you hone yours in a workshop for children and adults that will prove exercise need never be boring!

Charlton Athletic Football Club will be bringing their inflatable goal ready for some penalty shootouts, and Quest Black Belt School will be offering demonstrations in martial arts.

A crafting tent run by Eltham Library and soft play by Middle Park Community Centre will be complemented by glitter tattoos and face painting by Em’s Fun Faces.


What to expect

Our Summer in the Park Picnics are intended to be social gatherings with entertainment suitable for all of the family. There will be a main stage area plus other tents and stalls featuring local community groups and family activities such as games, crafts or workshops. Many of the acts on the main stage will be repeated so you can drop by at a time convenient throughout the day. They are relaxed and informal, you do not need a ticket and will not be expected to be quiet or be seated. Applause for the performers is always welcome!

What to bring

Do bring a picnic, blanket or chairs. If the weather is warm, bring a parasol and remember to put on your sunscreen and a hat. Alcohol is permitted but we ask that you drink responsibly.

Wet Weather

This event takes place outdoors and as we can’t rely on the British weather to be kind to us all of the time, we suggest following us on Twitter or Facebook to find out the latest news on our wet weather plans.


Feel free to bring your own refreshments. An ice cream van will be on site selling Mr Whippy, cold drinks and ice lollies.


Toilet facilities are available.
