Feel Good Festival this Sunday
Published: Friday 21st August 15
Local people are invited to enjoy an afternoon of food, art and entertainment at Roehampton’s annual summer festival on Sunday (August 23).
Known this year as the Feel Good Festival, highlights will include DJs, sports, food stalls, and a mini fun fair and inflatables for the children, plus free sandwiches for the first 400 people.
The ‘I Love Roe Town’ campaign will be launched at the festival, championing everything that people love about Roehampton.
Three new pieces of public art will also be unveiled, co-created by artists from Emergency Exit Arts and Cafe Joy, Super Clean Laundrette and Roehampton Library.
The campaign and artworks are part of the Roehampton Spills project that encourages local businesses and people to engage with their community in a creative way. You can keep up with the project on Twitter through the #CreativeHighStreet and #iloveroetown hashtags and via @RoeArts. Roehampton Spills is supported by the council and the Mayor of London.
The council’s Work Match team will be at the festival advising on job and training opportunities, and the Alton regeneration team will be answering local people’s questions about planned improvements to the area.
The council’s health trainers and stop smoking advisors will also be on hand to offer advice and visitors can get a free NHS health check.
The festival is organised by local charity Regenerate with support from the council and the Feel Good Bakery, and run by local volunteers. It is completely free to attend.
