Ready to Join?

Celebrate your birthday with a treat, weather permitting and a present too!


*The picnic depends on weather - it will be postponed if the weather is not suitable, so no guarantee of sticking to date.

Let’s Celebrate (y)our own birthday!

All of us have a birthday and many do not have a chance to celebrate due to busy lifestyles. The idea is to celebrate your and all our birthdays in one day, with presents!

Let's open a present, eat, have a few drinks, relax and celebrate… ☺. You bring whatever you want to drink, eat and share.

PLEASE NOTE: Picnics are weather dependent, so date may change due to weather forecast.

Feel free to bring friends (just let them know that they should sign on InterNations and for the activity first), BUT please note that participation is only possible upon bringing your birthday gift, which should be wrapped. You will get a number from me upon placing the gift with me.
We will all open gifts together after everyone has handed in their gifts, picked a number or 15:15 at the latest.

This park is a popular location for the group and is a relaxing way to spend sunny Sunday afternoon with drinks, food and hopefully good weather…

Look out for us and me wearing Red, White and Blue, with a handful balloons stuck to bags and a union jack towel on display (not trees or other park structures and this is not allowed)

Each person attending will make or purchase a gift, which they will bring gift- wrapped. Suggested budget is £5 minimum and £10 maximum. Please try for a unisex gift or one that is suitable for your gender (which effectively means we cover for everyone who turns up to participate). Remember to bring a gift that you would be happy with and it is better to give then receive!

I will hand a number to each person upon arrival. Once all presents are in a bag, the first person to arrive - No Protected content pick a gift and so on... We will then continue with the second person to arrive - No Protected content so on…

After everyone has picked, you can all open together and reveal your gift! Don’t forget you’ll be receiving a gift as well, so remain gracious and polite as you accept your present (even if you really don’t like what you got). Of course, you are all welcome to swap things with each other afterwards.

Only people who bring a birthday gift will be able to claim a gift. I will bring a few extra gifts, but anyone wishing to claim one will be asked to make a donation of £10 to the charity that I am supporting. No returns…

Here are the exact GPS co-ordinates of our location on day inside the park, where we will meet:

Protected content

As per activity page, the address is Protected content I suggest you arrive at Great Portland Street or Regents Park tube stations, as this will bring you our location within 5 mins. You need to make sure you are familiar with the location if planning to arrive from another station.

Outside Chester Gate, Protected content

Nearly everyone who attended in May Protected content the location easily.

You can call me on Protected content , but please bear in mind that once the picnic has started, I may not hear the phone call. Also, please don't text once the activity has started, as I will not be checking my phone all the time as I will be hosting the picnic :).

PS If you cannot attend, please kindly press “CANCEL ATTENDANCE” button so others can then join on the day. Thanks.
