This project was funded on 21 Jun 2016!

The Golborne Road Festival is a celebration of our rich, diverse community and we want to make 2016 our biggest and best day out yet! We are now in our 7th year, and with your help we will put on some great entertainment and fun activities that all the family can enjoy.

The Festival is organised by volunteers from the Golborne Forum, the local network that brings together residents, local community groups and local business.

All activities are FREE and when the sun is shining we expect up to 4,000 people from the local area and visitors from further afar will come and join us, enjoying the unique atmosphere of Golborne Road.

We will offer live entertainment featuring the best local talent, international food, sports and wellbeing activities, arts and crafts, and community stalls. There will be plenty to entertain the children with a bouncy castle, face painting and children’s entertainers.

What we'll deliver:

  • Promote local talent and provide opportunities for local people to join in and volunteer
  • Bring local people together to celebrate all that we love about Golborne
  • Put on a great day of FREE fun entertainment for all the family
  • Support the community organisations that support our local community

Why it's a great idea:

Golborne is a great place, with a special atmosphere. Its rich diversity, vibrant market and array of unique shops are reasons why many people love the area and choose to live or visit here.

But we know the area has its fair share of problems too. Golborne is one of London’s poorest wards. Many members of our community live in overcrowded conditions and suffer poor health.

That is why we want to put on a celebratory event that everybody can enjoy. We don’t charge for any of our activities. We want to bring everybody together.

Thanks to some great local sponsors we are already on our way towards our fundraising target. But we still face a shortfall in our budget. Missing our fundraising target would mean we’d have to make some tough decisions; to either cut back on the entertainment, or activities for children.

We hope you can help us reach our goal, and ensure another memorable Festival for the people of Golborne and North Kensington!

Steps to get it done:

  • We will work hard to get the word out to local people, ensuring everybody has the chance to join in
  • We will work with the Council and others to ensure we have the correct permits, adequate insurance and first aid cover
  • We will ensure there is enough nutritious food to satisfy everybody’s taste buds
  • We will hire a bouncy castle, children’s clown and ensure we have enough activities to keep our younger visitors happy
  • We will hire all the equipment we need – the stage and PA system, the stalls, safety barriers
  • We will promote the services and amazing work done by our local community organisations
  • We will provide a wide range of entertainment to cater for all tastes
