Come join us on Sunday 23rd of October for our queer community picnic!

Where: Woodend Gallery, Scarborough, YO11 2PW

When: Sunday 23rd October, 1-3 PM

Free Entry // Drop-in


You’re all warmly welcome to come to join us at our queer community picnic situated inside the Woodend Gallery, from 1-3 we’re going to be situated within the Woodend gallery which has become an indoor-outdoor space alongside the new exhibition ‘dear plants…’

The picnic, also happening alongside the exhibition at Woodend Gallery is also partly in response to the idea of creating an outdoor space indoors. The Woodend Gallery is now playing host to a brand new series of works from the students at Blueberry Academy… over the past couple of months, we’ve been working closely with the students alongside artist and gardener Meg Woodward-Hay in producing an exciting body of work directly made and influenced from our shared community Garden! Click here to learn more about the exhibition….

As well as being a safe space to connect, relax and have fun. It is also an exciting chance to see Woodend gallery and the exhibition in more detail. The event is totally free but donations are welcomed to help support Crescent Arts and the work that we do. 

Everyone is encouraged to share food, but it is not mandatory!  

Please bring:

  • Any food or drinks (with allergy and VG/V/GF information)
