Picnic in the Park
The Morpeth ‘Picnic in the Park’ is a free annual family event hosted by GMDT on either the 2nd or 3rd Sunday of July in Carlisle Park, whichever Sunday is immediately prior to the schools summer holidays. Each annual picnic has a theme and in 2018 it was “1918” – the year WW1 ended, and the year some women got the right to vote. There is also a corresponding art project geared to the same annual theme. The picnic runs from 12 noon – 4pm with free BBQ, music, children’s entertainment, magic, plus Whitehouse Farm, Old English Falconry, and much much more. Our 2019 ‘Picnic in the Park’ is on Sunday 14th July.
This is our biggest event and is supported by the Carlisle Park Team of Northumberland County Council,but also requires many GMDT volunteers on the day to ensure everything runs smoothly.
