Chiswick's Favourite Fortnight

Thank you to everyone who came to, and took part in, this year's Golden Jubilee Bedford Park Festival. Thousands of people enjoyed the sunshine and entertainment at the Green Days weekend which opened the Festival and hundreds attended the fortnight of Festival arts events that followed. You can see the news coverage here.

The Bedford Park Festival in Chiswick is one of London's best-loved arts and community events, attracting thousands of people of all ages. Each year it opens with the Green Days Fete & Craft Fair, on the Green opposite St Michael & All Angels Church and Turnham Green tube station. That is followed by a fortnight of talks, walks, music and drama performances and social events. See What's On page for this year's events (switch from 'Show all upcoming events' to 'Show all events'). Watch here and on social media for updates.

This year it was our Golden Jubilee, and we've been celebrating 50 years of the Festival. See photos of our 50th Green Days weekend last year and the video below. This year we highlighted Festival favourites such as the Bedford Park Summer Exhibition, Open Gardens, Festival Mass and Poetry Evening, and 'The Saving of Bedford Park' in 1967.

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


This year's Green Days weekend took place on June 10th and 11th and was a great success. See The Chiswick Calendar's video report.  Last year we celebrated the Festival's 50th Green Days Fete: a dozen local stars including Jeremy Vine, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Rageh Omaar, Phyllis Logan were there to open the Festival and they told Chiswickbuzz (right) why they love the event.
