Good News from your Festival Organisers
Here is some good news, we all need something to look forward to, so how about this.
We are proud to officially announce against all odds the special Event in Gladstone Park known affectionately as Gladstonbury Festival is back for its 10th year, thanks to the brave or is that foolhardy volunteer organisers that go by the name Dollis Hill Ventures in Proud partnership with the Gladstone Park Consultative Comittee and supported and funded by Brent Council, Simplysigns.com, Rent – a- tent, and estate agents Camerons Stiff & Co and Hoopers Estate Agents, Heritage Inn, Theme Traders.
On June 19th, also Fathers day, the park will host a very much community focused version of this much loved festival.
This year we are not trying to raise money for any causes or promote anything other than the idea that this should be an event for everyone in our rich and diverse community. WHY? Because we all deserve it and we believe that bringing people together to share in celebration and support of their neighbourhood is a great use of energy and proper good fun.
It’s not easy to create something for everyone but we are going to try and it looks like it’s shaping up to be a very special event So Here you go, this is some of what we have for you to look forward to so far…
