THE TWICKENHAM ALIVE STRAWBERRY HILL MUSIC & FUN DAY
Sunday 12th JULY 2015

The Twickenham Alive Music and Fun Day on July 2015 was a very successful day for Strawberry Hill House, members of the local community and thousands of visitors of all ages.
Although not the hottest day of the event’s nine year history (of which Twickenham Alive played a large part for the last four years) Twickenham Alive raised £8,000 towards the upkeep of Strawberry Hill House.
This year was the second year when Twickenham Alive organised the whole event, the largest and most popular event in Twickenham’s calendar. The music was sponsored by David McGeachie of Tenant Finder and as usual Nark Drool provided the backline and delighted the crowds.
The food stalls were once again second to none and we did not run out of food which used to happen before Twickenham Alive joined the event as organisers. Enzo’s pizza and Italian outdoor café divided the music area from the children’s fun area with water zorbas, pony rides, games and children’s stalls which all add to the fun of the fair provided by Parnham’s fairground.

An amazing number and collection of stalls selling jewellery, handbags, Peruvian goods and much more kept the ardent shopper busy.
This event takes months of hard work to organise, quite a responsibility as any number of people can descend upon the grounds of Strawberry Hill House for the one day event; I think the largest estimated attendance was 16,000 people.

Of course, when everyone has left the organisers still have a huge amount of work to do. Twickenham Alive always made sure that everything was back as it should be by the morning and this year we had the grounds cleared in record time, quite a feat since in 2015 year we had to clear three tonnes of rubbish!
