Fete-al Attractions

Green Days in Bedford Park, Chiswick, is, deep down, an old-fashioned summer fete, timeless, reassuring, and a whole load of fun. Try out the coconut shy, hang out at the bandstand, and browse the craft fair. Recycle old World Book Day costumes for the book-themed fancy dress competition, watch the five-a-side football contest, and even get some free basic repairs done on everyone’s bikes. There’s a special area for kids (50p entry), with hair braiding, music classes, an animal treasure hunt, art sessions, and, um, a crossbow game. Free. Saturday and Sunday. More here
