Your basket will include everything you need to enjoy your picnic!

Follow the signs for pick-up- we will welcome you, check you in, deliver your basket and wish you a happy day picnicking, with masks and social distancing protocols in place.
Accompanying your basket will be a QR code for short virtual messages and the perfect playlist to enjoy while picnicking.
