Cllr Emma Will, Kensington and Chelsea Council, Lead Member for Culture, Leisure and Community Safety

“Last year’s festival cemented itself as a notable event in London’s arts and culture calendar, attracting 35,000 people, with a strong mix of both residents and visitors drawn to the myriad attractions. Now for the whole of July and August, the public spaces in the borough will once again be packed with a wide variety of performances to cater for every taste. And with more shows than ever being free or pay-what-you-want, we’re delighted that there is also something for every budget.”

This is why we do what we do:

"I had the most magical moments today that I have ever had in this park"
