Hello!
It’s been a fun and sunny Festival week and hundreds of people have attended events all over Hither green! We close this year’s Festival with a BIG weekend of events for all the family.

Thank you for your support this week and look forward to doing it all again in 2018 – our 10th anniversary year! If your street or group would like to organise an event for 2018, drop us an email in November/ December. Festival planning starts in early January 2018.
