Highlights from Night of Festivals Hounslow in June 2018
Night of Festivals Hounslow
9-10 June 2018
Night of Festivals returned to Hounslow for a fantastic fourth year!
The free 2-day outdoor event brought a vibrant programme of music, dance and world-class carnival to Hounslow’s Bell Square and High Street. Two days featuring everything from Punjabi folk to Hip-Hop, from Bhangra to Jazz. A new addition to 2018’s event was the ‘pop-up museum’ - community researchers worked with Hounslow’s Local Studies Department to reveal the people, places and stories that make the town tick.
The museum was hosted outside Holy Trinity Church on the Saturday, and in Bell Square on the Sunday.
For all those carnival lovers, Mandinga Arts brought larger than life carnival costumes that paraded up and down High Street, including the florescent chickens, giant skeleton and the pineapple Queen!
