Day of Celebration on Saturday for White City
With festival, flash mob and Wormholt Park Fun Day
Hundreds of local people are expected to take to the streets on Saturday with celebrations taking place across White City and Wormholt.
A festival, organised by Big Local, Phoenix School and community and regeneration organisation Urban Partnership Group, or UPG will kick off at midday.
The organisers promise the festical will be a street party, reclaiming the green spaces of the area with dance performances on balconies, live bands in the streets, guerrilla gardening and rows of stalls celebrating local fayre.
There will also be White City's first ever flashmob event taking place between the redbrick buildings of the White City Estate.
The event will culminate in a live jam involving as many local musicians as will, supporting the flashmob dancers in a grand performance on our outdoor stage on Commonwealth Avenue.
The stage will be flanked by stalls with food, crafts and other stands.
At both events, local people will be invited to help shape the local area's future. Festival organisers will be asking they would like to see £1million, awarded to the area by the Big Lottery being spent.
And in Wormholt Park, people will have the opportunity to view and comment on the new designs and layout options for the park.
Architects Levitt Bernstein will be at the event to show their ideas which they have devised after speaking to local people.
"I hope plenty of people attend this event so we can find out what improvements they would like to see."
