International Picnic

International Picnic FlyerTwo of our favourite events, both on the same day!

International Picnic:

Celebrate the culture and diversity of Peterborough with our international bring and share picnic.

  • Live music and entertainment.
  • International cake/dessert competition (starts at 3pm)

This event is free. All we ask is that you bring some food to share!

Conker Championships:

Back to do battle for another year, the GBY is hosting its annual conker championships! Please arrive and be registered by 1pm if you want to take part in the championships and be in with a chance of basking in the glory of victory. Conkers are supplied.
Please note, you do battle at your own risk, so please provide your own goggles, rolled up newspapers, helmets, suits of armour or any other protective equipment you require. Children must be accompanied and supervised at all times.

Record yourself for posterity!

There will also be an opportunity to contribute to the visual and audio archive of The Green Backyard currently being created by Metal residency artist Jessie Brennan (http://www.jessiebrennan.co.uk/). Jessie will be inviting visitors to contribute their personal experiences of the GBY, which will be captured as audio-recordings.
