I am going this weekend to the picnic concert at Kenwood House. I have never been to one of these before and have a question about when you actually eat the picnic (!) We are sitting in the premium deckchairs, so not on the grass but in the actual seats - do people eat their picnics in these seats or on the grass before/after/at the interval?
I can't really see how you can have a picnic in your seat but I could be wrong. Maybe people eat before and just drink in their seats?
Thanks for any advice.

Ah yes well forking out for the deckchairs is a luxury but does rather bugger up the picnic thing.
I've been most years at least once and only sat in deck chairs once.
Was there a couple of weeks ago to see the divine Rufus Wainwright, sitting on the grass quite near the free cider stall smile and enjoyed a lovely picnic and commented on the 'it wouldn't be the same in deckchairs'.

I would get there about an hour early, enjoy a picnic on the grass then sit and relax in your deckchairs for the concert with your wine.

Have a lovely evening.

Thank you very much for your quick reply, that's confirmed what I thought, so we will get there early to picnic beforehand.
