Gigs and Picnics in the City

I'm an experienced corporate communicator and editor with an eye for interesting events and an attachment to my trusty Oxford dictionary.
Brisbane's City Botanic Gardens is the perfect spot for a picnic on the manicured lawns or under a spreading tree, and every Brisbaneite knows that May is the perfect time for a picnic.

Well, Brisbane City Council is providing an added reason to get out in those glorious gardens and autumn sunshine, every Saturday afternoon this May with Gigs and Picnics in the Gardens.

BYO rugs, chairs and picnic basket, and spread out while you listen to live music. If you don't want to pack your own picnic, don't worry. There will also be food trucks in attendance to satisfy your cravings.

Each May Saturday food trucks will set up shop from midday, while two separate local Brisbane acts will entertain you; one from midday to 2pm, and another from 2pm to 4pm. You can enjoy everything from jazz and gypsy swing to reggae and dub.

Here is the line-up for the rest of May:

12 May: Dave Orr Band and Lachlan McKenzie Trio
19 May: Bearfoot and The Long Johns
26 May: Cachicamo Latin Harp and The SugarShakers
