Japanese Garden Community Picnic

11 May — 12:00 pm

Saturday 11 May 2019            12.00 – 5.00pm

Hammersmith Park – Japanese Garden
6
0 Batman Close, Shepherd’s Bush
London W12 7NU

No booking required – just turn up on the day!

Join us for a spring afternoon of family fun and entertainment in the peaceful surroundings of Hammersmith Park’s Japanese garden. Bring your family, friends and your own supplies for a picnic under a tree or on the grass field and enjoy live music and performances. You can participate in a treasure trail, learn to write haiku or try your hand at folding origami animals or at writing your name in Japanese. Or just idly enjoy your food and drinks admiring the Japanese garden and (hopefully!) the nice spring weather.

Happy Sky Bakery will be joining us with a selection of delicious Japanese bread and snacks and An-An Wagashi will be demonstrating how to make traditional Japanese sweets.
