Rainbow Family Picnic

Let's celebrate families in all the colours of the rainbow!

Join storyteller Jacqui Hoy and some very special youth musical guests for a picnic party bursting with song, stories, and pride. Young drag performers will keep everyone entertained and smiling.

Get ready to listen to stories about all kinds of families, about the power of pride, and about why we are all fabulous! Chill out to the acoustic tunes while you meet new friends under the trees, grab a coffee from a local café, or browse the newest titles on the shelves at Newport Library. Wear a kaleidoscope of colours and pose for photos with some of the most colourful characters you’ll ever encounter.

Bring along your picnic rug and a snack and settle in for a magical morning of celebration in the park. Don't forget your hat and sunscreen.

Family friendly - all families are welcome here!
