60 unforgettable picnic hampers up for grabs with The Uncommon’s Dial-A-Picnic! This summer, canned English wine pioneers The Uncommon will be revolutionising alfresco afternoons across the capital with their Dial-A-Picnic competition. 60 of their extraordinary picnics (worth £250) will be delivered direct to winners in the park with unexpected fanfare, absolutely free. Decadent? Undeniably. Tantalising? Unquestionably. Forget everything you think you know about your usual picnic – soggy sausage rolls and all. These uncommon hampers will be politely bursting with a beautiful grazing platter (for four), a soft, recycled wool blanket, the scandalously underrated lawn game of Quoits and a bounty of award-winning bubbly wines and spritzers. To be in with the chance of securing this all-inclusive afternoon of parklife luxury, message the Dial-A-Picnic WhatsApp hotline (now live) with your name, choice of park, and the song that would make your picnic. Each week, 20 winners will be selected and asked to drop their location pin in one of 3 of the capital’s favourite parks. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ultimate uncommon English picnic delivered straight to you and your friends. Yes, it really is that simple. Producing locally grown and sustainably made English sparkling wines in cans, The Uncommon is what makes any picnic unforgettable. About The Uncommon: Founded by Henry Connell and Alex Thraves in Peckham, south-east London, The Uncommon was born from two long-term friends quitting their jobs in New York and London respectively, with a dream of creating a modern, sustainable English wine brand. Henry was working in property and Alex in graphic design, and having seen the boom in canned wine in the US and the accolades received by English wine, they knew that it was time English wine followed suit. And with millennials out-drinking baby boomers for the first time and being more open-minded in their choices, the pair decided to act – creating The Uncommon. Dial-A-Picnic T&Cs: • Our Dial-A-Picnic hotline is open from Thursday 1st July to Friday 6th August 2021. • 60 picnic hampers are up for grabs; 20 winners will be selected at random and notified on the Friday before each picnic live date. • Picnic days and times are non-transferable and no cash alternative will be offered. • Lucky winners must share their location within the park via WhatsApp by 12PM. We can’t deliver if we can’t find you! • Classic, vegetarian and vegan picnic hampers are all available. We’ve made sure there’s something for everyone. • And in case you’re isolating or indisposed on the day, we’ll find a way to bring the picnic to you! Told you this is an uncommon kind of picnic…
