This June, Topshop will be hosting a series of picnics in city bandstands up and down the country. The events will be hosted by Jameela Jamil and Miquita Oliver with all profits being donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. Activity wise, the picnics promise a plethora of fun including festival face decoration, roller skating and some tip top musical entertainment from the likes of New Young Pony Club, Eliza Doolittle and Slow Club. Don’t forget the Jammy Dodgers folk.
