From jugs of Pimm's to tasty pizzas, celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee at Picnic in the Park.

The event takes place on Saturday, June 4, in Old Buckenham Country Park from 2pm until the evening with free entry and parking.

It will be on the field by the café, which recently launched a new menu, and it overlooks the lake. 

There will be live music from local musicians and activities for children, including a treasure hunt from Alan at Talk Wildlife who runs a nature programme there.

The OB Café boasts a large outdoor seating area with a heated tent too.

You can bring your own picnic or buy from Fitzroys Street Food, which does macaroni cheese and other vegetarian dishes, and Pommarola Pizza.

Old Buckenham Country Park will also be selling jugs of Pimm's and cream teas with homemade scones.

Ben Devlin, who opened the park in 2020, said: "We want to bring people together in the local villages to celebrate and it would be great if people brought flags to make it colourful."
