White City's Big Day Out is a Huge Success
Crowds take to the streets to enjoy our annual festival
After early rain, the sun came out for the crowds flocking to the W12 Festival on Sunday, which was officially opened by H&F's Mayor and local councillor Mercy Umeh.
The festival, which took over Australia Road and the surrounding area, was also attended by Hammersmith MP Andy Slaughter, seen here enjoying a stall selling Mansaf, Palestine's favourite food, with all proceeds going to Gaza orphans' fund.
There was music on two stages from a line-up including White City's Elvis, Ashleigh Ashley, Asha Heights, Angel, Ad Harris, Suffice, Dan Glover, Maddy Carty,steel pan player Michael Olivier, Floyd Parris and Cats on Ladders, plus lots of other up and coming talent including Oscillations, a band made up of clients of the mental health team at St Mungo's Broadway.
There were also a variety of information and food stalls,table top sales, belly dance workshop, a dog show and kidzone with fun and games including a football challenge run by the QPR Community Trust which had over 80 young people taking to the pitch.
Afterwards, the local Twittersphere declared the day, organised by Our Big Local and local sports and arts charity The Whole Picture, a massive success:
