PARTY TIME: Festivals make the most of Indian summer
CROWDS enjoyed the magic of Uxbridge’s annual street festival. BigFest brought a host of attractions and activities to the town centre on Sunday for people to enjoy completely free.
Now in its 12th year, the family-friendly festival is always a popular event, with shops working together to provide a programme of music, theatre, stories, dance and street art. This year, the most popular attractions included a tiny theatre built on a motorbike sidecar and a cinema that fitted snugly into a wardrobe.
Children were captivated by a sword swallower, stilt walkers and a magician, and enjoyed traditional fairground games.
Fans of live music headed straight for the Flower Stall Stage, opposite Uxbridge Tube station, where an eclectic mixture of acts provided the soundtrack to the day, while bookworms indulged in a pop-up Literature Salon. There was also street food for sale.
