For the last four years we’ve attended the Tatton park picnic Concerts, and every year we are not disappointed!
The picnic concert starts at 5 and everyone trundles up the 20 minute walk from the car park absolutely laden down with bags and camping chairs and other essentials for a truly glorious picnic. Once into the field you pick a spot. our philosophy with spot preference is the reverse to most concerts…we accept we won’t see much of the orchestra and to be honest ORCHESTRA SMORCHESTRA! the view you want from your seats is that of the lake. AS lovely view at the best of times but when the firework extravaganza starts – themed and set to music it is AMAZING.
The picnic starts at 5 and the orchestra comes on at 8pm so there is plenty of time for picnicking, reading, chatting and hooking. It is absolute nirvana to anyone who love people watching – some people go to great lengths and bring table clothes and even candelabras!! This year we have had the best weather yet and were able to discard the golf umbrellas and the blankets only came out about 10pm when it was getting chilly. I’ll leave you with a few pictures – crafty stuff next week I promise!
