Four consecutive weekends of family fun and entertainment helped to create a buzz in Uxbridge town centre throughout June. The first ever Love Uxbridge Festival, brought to you by Uxbridge BID, generated a positive feeling with a new theme every weekend in June - including food, music, children's entertainment, history, and art.
Weekend 1: Love Having Fun, Love Uxbridge
Our Summer festival began with a weekend for kids to enjoy free children's rides, including tea cups, a merry-go round, chair-swings, and face painting over at intu Uxbridge. It was a brilliant weekend to see smiling faces in the sunshine enjoying a half term weekend! Check out some of the highlights from the weekend here.
Weekend 2: Love Delicious Food, Love Uxbridge
Uxbridge high street welcomed The Market People to provide delicious continental food to the public, from thai curry to burritos to french cheese...it was a weekend to celebrate the many cuisines and cultures in Uxbridge. Shoppers were also treated to a fantastic live performance from Flash Mob Jazz out on The Piazza, whilst those lucky enough to arrive early treated to a free cocktail or mocktail from Slug & Lettuce! Have a look at some action shots of those enjoying cocktails whilst listening to Jazz on the Green here
Weekend 3: Love History & Art, Love Uxbridge
A weekend for the artistic minds featured a pop-up art gallery, floral arranging workshop, a caricature artists and a local history trail. We temporarily transformed Chequers Square in The Pavilions shopping centre into a pop-up art gallery, where local artists were then able to display their fantastic portraits, photography, still life, and diamond paintings! Our local history trail involved 12 history boards dotted around the town centre, illustrating how the town centre used to look in centuries gone by - history on the go! All the highlights can be found here
Weekend 4: Love Live Music, Love Uxbridge
The Love Uxbridge Festival finished with a flourish as numerous live performers helped to ensure Uxbridge was sounding at its very best. The two shopping centres became temporary live music venues as they welcomed Yiewsley & West Drayton Band, Pimp My Jazz, and the wonderful pianist Andrei Anghel on the Saturday afternoon. On the Sunday, Uxbridge high street played host to its very own live music stage as shoppers were wowed with live band performances from Damo & The Dynamites, Ali In The Jungle, and The Milly Soo Band. A musical weekend, unique to Uxbridge - see the best photos here
