The Bedford Park Festival in Chiswick is one of London's best-loved arts and community events, attracting thousands of people of all ages. Because of the COVID-19 Lockdown, Green Days weekend cannot take place on Acton Green this year so we are going to hold a virtual Bedford Park Festival Online. See the What's On page for all the Festival events - including lots of celebrities (see photos above) - and the Green Days & Craft Fair at Home page for a glimpse of our virtual Green and Craft Fair!

A capacity crowd for the Mass on the Green: St Michael & All Angels Church has organised the Bedford Park Festival for 54 years and Green Days weekend is its church fete. This year it is celebrating 140 years serving the community in Chiswick.
Green Days At Home will open the Festival, on June 13th and 14th 2020, raising money for our three charities and the work of St Michael & All Angels. But it will all happen online, with lots of the usual events, albeit in a different form. See the What's On page for all the Festival events and the Green Days & Craft Fair at Home page for a glimpse of our virtual Green and Craft Fair!
There will be a Children's Fancy Dress Photo Competition and a Football Skills cometition; more than 25 Craft Fair exhibitors (click link to see the 2019 exhibitors); and Bandstand performances online. We are also sharing lots of photographs of 50 Years of Green Days, decade by decade, for our Spirit of Green Days competition.
The Bedford Park Festival photographic exhibition (see 2019 page) will take place that weekend, entirely online, and entries are now open. It is being run in partnership with The Chiswick Calendar. Read how to submit photos on their website - and watch this page for the link to make payments. The Bedford Park Summer Exhibition of artworks is also going to be hosted by The Chiswick Calendar. Read how to submit artwork here.
The following weekend, we shall be supporting Artists (Staying) At Home as usual. And there will be concerts, talks and other events online. This year's virtual Festival will take place from Friday June 12th to Sunday June 28th 2020.
