THE TWICKENHAM ALIVE STRAWBERRY HILL MUSIC & FUN DAY Sunday 22 JULY 2014

This year’s Strawberry Hill Music and Fun Day organised by Twickenham Alive has been tweeted as the biggest and best event in the nine years of this annual event. The RFU was the major sponsor and Tenant Finder and McGeachie Medd were music sponsors.

The music line up which opened with the all girl band Lips, was headlined by the Carnabys and was closed by the all time favourites Nark Drool and the Shudders. Other musicians in the line up included K, The Deputies and Shelle Luscombe.

This year there was particular emphasis on an area for children of all ages starting with activities for the under 5s, Shetland pony rides, water zorbing, table tennis and much more.

Following on from an excellent performance from the Carnabys there was a slight deviation from the music programme when a very nervous young man asked if he could propose to his girlfriend from the stage (Daniel Fogg and Joanne Mead). Luckily for Daniel, Joanne accepted his proposal and was lifted over the barrier to the stage area …..
The Director of Strawberry Hill House, Nicholas Smith and his staff were very pleased with the event which raises money for the upkeep of Strawberry Hill House.

Strawberry Hill House commented on the family atmosphere of the event: “it was great to see more families on site with all the impact that has on the appearance of the event and the enjoyable nature of the day”. The selection of the bands was also praised for their variety.

Twickenham Alive put a number of new measures in place to make the event enjoyable for the thousands of people who attended.  There was more security staff who were said to be friendlier and pro-active and Continental Landscapes did an amazing job cleaning the site in record time.
