Sunday Stalls

On the Sunday of Green Days weekend, we reset the Green to make room for dozens of charity, local community and craft stalls. Like the stallholders in the Craft Fair marquees, they pay us a fee, which goes towards our Festival charities
Some of this year's 25 stalls are listed below. Watch for updates.

Age Concern
Age Concern Chiswick is a local volunteer-run organisation providing companionship for older people in our community. Our Friendship Club on Oxford Road North is open every Monday and Thursday 10am-4pm: members can enjoy a hot drink and light lunch and activities such as bingo, keep fit and crafting. Outings include trips to the seaside and Kew Gardens. Membership is £7 per year. We seek friendly, capable volunteers to keep our club running. See more on our Facebook page or call 020 8742 7007.

Artists at Home
63 pop-up exhibitions await you across Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush. 77 artists will be delighted to welcome you to their houses, studios and flats, to view paintings, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery.

Omushana
We are a very small charity. We buy the goods directly from the women - who use the money they raise to help pay for their children's education. We then sell the crafts in the UK and 100% of the money we raise goes back into the charity. There are no outgoings, for example to fund the travel of the Trustees to Uganda.

Peter Burgess
A painter based in Lincolnshire.  His work stems from a fascination with the visible world, and from an obsession with the activity of painting.  He loves the feel and smell of the paint, and the magic of colours and shapes turning into an image which has never existed before.

W4 Youth
A community youth project for 11-19 year olds in West London. Over 300 young people are involved in its activities, including two league football teams, dance, fitness coacing, kick boxing and a traditional youth club. 

The charity was born out of a tragic incident that happened to my son when nearly 10 years ago he was shot in the face by a group of young men with no boundaries, no work and no real hope.  When you see your son’s life crumble and a previously confident person struggle so badly, it’s enough to motivate you to make changes in your community so that others don’t experience something similar to you.  
Charity Number: 1141209
