The Wonky Picnic Thursday 18 July 2019

Dash Water are bringing a wonderfully wonky world to Londoners, with the UK’s largest free ‘Unashamedly WonkyPicnic’.

At the heart of Dash Water’s ethos is the mission to reduce food waste in a fun, yet sustainable way, whilst hydrating the nation.

Join the Dash Water team at London’s Soho Square between 12-4pm on 18 July and enjoy a selection of picnic treats in a farm-like setting in the hustle and bustle of central London. Curved cucumber sandwiches and a citrusy lemon meringue pavlova topped with wonky raspberries will be handed out, creating a wonky take on a quintessentially British summer day. 

In the UK alone, 5,000,0001 tonnes of food is wasted each year as it is deemed too imperfect for our supermarket shelves. Dash Water uniquely infuse their cans with surplus and “wonky” fruit saved from British farms, highlighting alternative uses for curved cucumbers, squashed fruit and knobbly lemons.

Guests will be able to enjoy Dash Water’s full range whilst relaxing on on picnic blankets, deck chairs and hay bales over lunch in London. Guests will also be invited to pose with friends in front of a wonderfully wonky Dash Water photobooth and use farm inspired props to capture the moment which will be sent directly to their iphone or android device. The entire range has no calories, is free from sugars, sweeteners and artificial flavours, resulting in a selection of refreshing drinks with a natural lift, capturing a ‘dash’ of flavour in every sip. Flavours include:

  • Blackcurrant – British sparkling water infused with wonky blackcurrants for a sweet dash of flavour
  • Cucumber – British sparkling water infused with curved cucumbers for a cool dash of flavour
  • Raspberries – British sparkling water infused with raspberries for a drink that captures the flavours of summer
  • Lemon – British sparkling water infused with lemons for a drink with a zesty kick

The Wonky picnic will be open in Soho Square from 12.00pm on Thursday 18th July. Free entry for all ages.
