Nine day festival begins with Summer Market in North End Road
Celebrating Fulham, our annual festival of all things SW6 is back this Saturday, June 27 and runs through till July 5.
Residents are invited to join the nine-day festival of fun with activities across Fulham to suit every taste.
Celebrating Fulham 2015 is offering a packed programme of events, kicking off with a Summer Market in a pedestrianised North End Road with 150 stalls, children’s entertainment and much more on Saturday.
Events during the next week include music, film, talks, tours, theatre, wine and cookery classes, special offers and fun and games for kids.
There will also be the annual Fair on the Green treating residents and visitors to a family fun day in Parsons Green with rides, performances and over 100 stalls on July 4.
Festival organiser Maya Donelan says: " There’s something for everyone to enjoy. Why not watch Wimbledon on a roof terrace, learn to bluff your way with French wines, join in a sing-along, see a play or a classic film or take in a concert?
" Or you could go walking with bats, explore monuments in Margravine Cemetery, take a lion house tour, go foraging for food or just stroll around Charing Cross Hospital’s unique art collection."
Cllr Andrew Jones, cabinet member with responsibility for the local economy and the arts, says: "“The council is delighted to be backing this popular Fulham festival. I hope people will enjoy themselves and let us know what they think."
