Scores of visitors lined the streets at the weekend to celebrate the final day of the Hampstead Summer Festival.

The festival culminated in its annual Big Fair, which took place on Sunday (2nd July) on Heath Street.

Thousands of people filled the streets to explore more than 100 stalls to a backdrop of live music and street entertainment, including a traditional fun fair and street circus.

Proceeds from the festival will go to 3 local charities – Age UK Camden, Keats Community Library and the Hampstead School of Art.

People out on Heath Street for the Big Fair included scores of dedicated event volunteers who were on-hand to help guide visitors around the attractions.

Festival volunteers sported t-shirts sponsored by housebuilder Fairview New Homes, one of the companies which supported this year’s event.

Els Bauer, one of the organisers of the Hampstead Summer Festival, said: “The festival and the Big Fair were a huge success again this year, attracting thousands of locals, Londoners and guests from further afield.

“With so much going on right through Heath Street – including the festival stages which give a platform for local talent to shine on – there was something for everyone to enjoy at the Summer Festival.

“The festival is run entirely by a group of passionate local volunteers who work tirelessly to bring people together to celebrate all there is to offer in Hampstead.

“We hope that everyone who came along had a wonderful time, and we look forward to seeing them again next year.”

Jeremy Gee, Main Board Director at Fairview, said: “The Hampstead Summer Festival is an important annual event in the local community, attracting swathes of people with a calendar of exciting events.

“Having previously supported the good work of Age UK Camden, we were keen to support this year’s Summer Festival in any way we could – and we’re pleased to hear that our donation has helped to benefit 3 good local causes.”
