The Queen’s Park Summer Festival is back and bigger than ever celebrating its Eleventh birthday on Saturday 2nd of August in Queen’s Park Gardens, Ilbert Street W10 from 12 Noon-6pm.
This extremely popular annual event has grown year on year and has a large dedicated following. The event is co-ordinated by Cllr Ryan James Dalton on behalf of the new Queen’s Park Community Council and brings together a range of partners* and resident volunteers to deliver a fantastic free event and diverse community celebration.
This year promises to be the best yet with a non-stop showcase of diverse local and professional talent on the main stage, sports and games from Westminster Sports Unit and QPR on the sports pitch, entertainment for younger children in the play area, a chill out area with information and activities on healthy living, global food, a bouncy castle assault course, climbing wall and bucking bronco, and local stalls and entertainment dotted throughout the park. For older residents Open Age and City west Homes are putting on afternoon tea with line dancing and live salsa entertainment (and of course bingo) from 1-5pm in St Jude’s Hall.
This event plays host to over 2000 people annually and continues to grow year on year.
The Queen’s Park Summer Festival is the key highlight in the wider Paddington Festival taking place across Queen’s Park, Westbourne and Harrow Road and the rest of Paddington all over the summer. See www.paddingtonfestival.co.uk for more details.
It has the biggest turnout and is a great opportunity for businesses to promote themselves.
