Go Back To The 80s At #PiP Dad’s Day Off!


For a fun day out that’s perfect for the whole family, be sure not to miss Picnic In The Parks next exciting event! Switch off, disconnect and escape the hustle and bustle of the present day, and go “Back to the Future” with I Love The 80s at #PiP Dad’s Day Off.

What Is It?

Remember growing up in the 80s? When Pacman, The A-Team, and roller skates were cool? Don’t forget the collection of awesome pop music, great movies, and some of the weirdest fashion trends ever! Those were the days! And, to take us back in time to enjoy it once more, this fun-filled flashback welcomes the entire family, especially dads.

To set the mood, there will be screenings of some classic 80s movies on the big screen at 11:00, 13:00, and 15:00. And, to add a bit more excitement to the day, there’ll be plenty of 80s fun and novelty treats to entertain grown-ups and kids alike, including an Outdoor Pool Hall, a car display, an Original 80s Arcade Centre, the Craft Beer Village with local brews ,and loads of live music.

Between movies, why not try the Pacman challenge? Play Pacman on the big screen and the winner of the challenge will take home a special prize! Take a picnic basket and blanket along with you, or buy some food from the market. Also, have a go on some of the games such as It’s A Knockout, the Mario Brothers, Donkey Kong, and many more, that will certainly take you back to your childhood!

And, to add even more to this already completely 80s scene, the event will be sound-tracked with plenty of the decade’s greatest hits from The Cure, Prince, The Police, Duran Duran, Madonna, AHA, Billy Idol, Tiffany, The Go Go’s, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, The Clash, and Jesus and the Mary Chain just to name a few!

Check out the map below to find out where everything is going to be on the day!
