A giant picnic is going to take place on Winckley Square as part of a national day of sitting outside and hopefully enjoying the sunshine.

The Big Lunch comes to the city and there’s a variety of activities planned.

An Edith Rigby puppet theatre will mark one of the Square’s most famous residents and a plant sale is also planned.

Organisers have confirmed there will be live music from the Intercity Blues Band.

There will be food and a pop-up bar offering Pimms, prosecco and beer as well as soft drinks.
