CELEBRATING 50 YEARS: 1967-2017 

9-25 June 2017
Chiswick's Favourite Fortnight 

The Bedford Park Festival in Chiswick is one of London's best-loved arts and community events, attracting thousands of people from the area and further afield. You can see photos of last year's arts events to the right and in our Flickr albums - and also of our 50th Green Days weekend (click 'Back to albums' link to see earlier decades).

There is always something for everyone: art, photography, dramamusic, film, poetry, talks, walks and children’s and community events. This year's programme will be published in May. If you have a suggestion, please contact Tassy Russell at

We continue our celebrations of 50 years of the Festival. At the 50th Festival in 2016, we held events marking 50 Years of its opening Green Days fete. You can see hundreds of photos of Green Days, including last year's Festival opening, when we welcomed back a dozen celebrities who have opened the Festival over the years. Sophie Ellis Bextor returned later to sing - see Green Days video below.

A year on, we are celebrating the Festival's 50th anniversary (1967-2017) and its other highlights, including the annual Bedford Park Summer Exhibition and Open Gardens and 'The Saving of Bedford Park'.

The Festival raises money for charities and the work of St Michael and All Angels Church, with the wholehearted support of the community and local businesses.

You can see last year's winners on the Competitions page. 


In 2016 we celebrated the 50th Green Days event at the Bedford Park Festival: a plethora of stars including Jeremy Vine, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Rageh Omaar, Phyllis Logan and more were there to show their support.
