Locals enjoying the Friends of Blakers Park Picnic summer 2010 in Fiveways, Brighton and Hove,
East Sussex.

Blaker's Park, the community open space near Fiveways, Brighton, is to host two special public events during the Spring.
They happen on Sunday 15th May, beginning with the Open Art Exhibition, when everyone is welcome to bring along their own art and
put it on display – and even to sell it. It starts at 12 noon and ends at 4pm. Artists of all ages are welcomed – it's a friendly, supportive event to encourage everyone to feel good about their own creativity and that of their friends and family. All mediums are welcome – including painting, drawing, collage, photography, prints and etchings. Just bring a hook with which to hang it.
For the first time there will also be workshops, run by artists and teachers, in charcoal drawing. Some art materials will be provided but
all artists are encouraged to bring sketchpads, watercolours, chalks and crayons to turn the park into a giant studio. Tutors will be on hand to give tips and advice. As an extra bonus and to turn Blaker's Park into Montmartre for one afternoon, everyone wearing a beret will get a drinks discount at the café! Smocks are optional!
On the same day, Sunday 15th May, a local arboriculturalist will lead a walking Tour of the Trees. This is back by popular demand after a highly successful guided tour of the park's 106 tree varieties in October. The tour will start at 2pm and last about an hour. If the weather is bad on Sunday 15th may, both of the above events will be postponed for a week, until Sunday 22nd May.
