A Family funday packed with more than 100 stalls, stage shows and rides delighted the crowds as this year’s Celebrating Fulham festival came to an end this weekend.

The Fair on the Green saw performances on two stages throughout the day, including dance groups and a ventriloquist, as well as a funfair, trampolines, pony rides and a bouncy castle on Saturday, 4 July.

Cllr Andrew Jones, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration, said: "Celebrating Fulham started off brilliantly with more than 15,000 people enjoying the shopping, food and music at the North End Road traffic free summer market and finished with the popular Fair on the Green, with great events in between.

"It has been a fantastic week, catering to a really wide range of tastes. As always, the council was delighted to work with the Fulham Society and others to play a part in making it such a success."

The fair in Parsons Green was one of an eclectic range of activities which took place over the weekend.

Other highlights on Saturday included a walking tour of West Kensington’s musical past, a performance by the talented Addison Singers and a tour of Bishops Park.

More music, culture and family fun was held on Sunday, 5 July. It included an introduction to the Hammersmith & Fulham Poetry Enjoyment Group, a performance of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice by award-winning theatre group Illyria, choral evensong at St Andrew’s Church and a night-time bat walk around the gardens of Fulham Palace.
