On May 13th 2018, join Greenwich for Europe and Lewisham East for Europe at their second annual Europe Day picnic, being held in collaboration with European Movement City & East branch.
Europe Day is an annual celebration of peace and unity across the EU and, given the divisions caused by the referendum, this event aims to counter that with a sign of coming together to remember the positive aspects of EU membership. The day itself is on May 9th but as this is a weekday the picnic will be held on the 13th, which is the first Sunday following the day.
Bake cakes, bring food, bring drink, bring games, bring flags, bring music, bring your friends and family, bring your pets, bring EU-themed things, and let's have a great day!
This is the flagship in a series of grassroots-led events being organised around the country to mark Europe Day, in collaboration with a number of national partners, following on from the success of the initiative in 2017. Further information about the initiative can be found at www.europeday.org.uk
