The hugely popular festival of the very best of our local food, culture, history and entertainment starts on Saturday June 27 and runs through till Sunday, July 5.

The week kicks off at on Saturday with the Fulham Feastival, taking place at Fulham Island in Jerdan Place.

The Feastival offers a mezze of food stalls from some of
Fulham’s best loved restaurants and eateries including The Blue Elephant, The Parson’s Nose, Best Mangal and Emporio Store, with cookery demonstrations as well as food sampling.


Live jazz is from The Jimmy Beckley Trio, and there is children’s entertainment and street performance, table football, a puppet show and more. The Official opening is by Cllr Frances Stainton, Cabinet Member for Parks, Heritage and Culture at 1.30pm. Come hungry!

The day's other highlights include:

The Walham Wanderer Walk
Modern day Fulham Broadway is celebrated for its pubs, bars and restaurants. This is home to Chelsea FC but really it is a medieval village, where you can still just make out the old Green and the pond. Come on a Walham Green Wander and get the 'back story' on today's buzzy Fulham Broadway.
