In case it is not marked in indelible ink in your diary, it’s currently National Picnic Week! In celebration of an event as exciting as this, we’re urging you to get into the spirit of things by vowing to eat lunch al fresco this week. So, come on British sunshine, do us proud.
Whether you're eating on a bench outside the office or heading to the park with a group of chums at the weekend, it's time to make picnicking a priority. And, because sandwiches alone don’t cut it, we’ve rounded up the best picnic essentials that, obviously, you can't leave the house without. Gather the troops, stock up on supplies, and head out on a very British outing. Save us an egg and cress, while you're at it?
