This year’s event will be held on Saturday September 9 from 11am-4:30pm
Visitors can look forward to a range of activities and entertainment including no less than nine musical acts, among them rat pack crooner Ray Lowe, Sikh drummers, Bollywood and Hindu music (please note there may be changes to the final lineup). There will also be lashings of cake, food and drink and plenty of freebies.
Each year the event raises thousands of pounds for charity. Last year the organisers handed over £6,000 to Water Aid, which works to supply safe water to communities around the world, and to W4 Youth which provides 250 young people in west London with a supportive network, fun activities and a safe place to go.

Nolita Golding – bilingual vocalist, songwriter, lyricist
Nolita Golding was born in Coventry, England and is of mixed Spanish, English and Mexican (Mayan from Yucatán) heritage. Her first memories of music are singing by the piano with her grandmother, Eileen Golding, a key figure who set her on the path of music. These formative beginnings prompted Nolita later in her career to use her grandmother’s surname in her artist name, which she feels reflects her roots and mixed heritage.

This year, we’re supporting both W4 Youth and Water Aid.
