Picnic and play at The Deck

Throughout August, guests to The Deck at the National Theatre can enjoy a picnic in its rooftop garden, complete with grass and blossom trees, before making their way downstairs to watch one of the National’s plays. Priced at just £55 per person for the picnic and play, hampers include potted ham and homemade piccalilli, smoked salmon and fennel salad with dill and chardonnay dressing and a summer berry trifle to finish, served with Pimm’s or homemade lemonade.
