HammersmithLondon – the Business Improvement District for Hammersmith town centre – has launched its Summer Festival programme for 2018.
The programme has run for a number of years, and has successfully increased footfall for the daytime and nighttime economies.
The award-winning festival celebrates its 10th year with a packed programme of live theatrical performances, sport and opera on the Big Screen, outdoor fitness classes and events promoting culture, safety and security and encouraging sustainable living.
HammersmithLondon and Lyric Hammersmith join forces once again to host Lyric Fest – a three-day event taking place 29 June -1 July. The Festival coincides with ArtsFest, and as part of this Tales of Joy, a new piece of live theatre will premiere in Lyric Square on Saturday 9 July.
The popular big screen in Lyric square will show a blend of movies – including a special outdoor screening of the “The Greatest Showman – Sing Along!” – and sports such as live action and highlights from Wimbledon and the Tour de France. This year sees the launch of Hammersmith TV with features on Hammersmith life and interviews with the people that make up the diverse culture and personality of the town.
There are also evenings of live opera beamed directly from the Royal Opera House, ping pong tables, picnic tables and deckchairs, and free outdoor fitness classes.
