SouthWestFest Street Parade

SouthWestFest Street Parade


SouthWestFest is a large scale community festival celebrating all that’s great in SW1 and attended by over 7,000 people each year.

Over three years, Creative Junction event managed and produced the Community Parade, involving hundreds of people including samba bands, singers, dancers and costumed performers and vehicles including vintage vans, the London Fire Brigade and a London bus.

The Parade transformed the streets of London into a festival extravaganza of colour, costumes, music and dance before arriving at St George Gardens and taking to the main stage.

Anna Jones of Creative Junction joined the SouthWestFest team as Parade Coordinator, bringing her fantastic set of skills and experience producing creative events for children and young people and communities.  Anna worked tirelessly to help bring the event together, contacting and connecting new cultural and community groups, schools and nurseries from South Westminster and we saw a 15% rise in numbers of new groups taking part in the Parade“.
