    Is there anything better than sunshine and an outdoor feast? With the exception of being at a festival or spending time in the great outdoors, we think not! Picnic season is well and truly upon us, and gone are the days of soggy sandwiches on an old blanket: modern picnicking is so much more. From what you sit on to how you cook your food or keep it cool - here at Robert Dyas we have everything you need to pack a proper picnic.

    Whether you want to plan an afternoon in the local park, a meal in your backyard, prepare for a picnic-worthy event like Wimbledon - strawberries and cream, anyone? - make sure you opt for both style and substance the next time you dine alfresco. And don't forget, the great thing about picnicware is that it's multi-purpose - it can easily be reused for all of your summer camping and festival needs. So shop once, and get sorted for the whole summer ahead!
