Parksfest 2019 in Charlton Park: What did you think?

Inclement weather was nowhere to be seen for Saturday’s Parksfest, with attendees soaking up the sun all afternoon. Face painting, drumming and skating were on offer – plus plenty of cake at the Great Charlton Cake Off stall.

Musical entertainment was provided by The Big Red Bus Club’s Baby Blues Choir, DJ Mikee C, Central Vibe and Ronnie Ripple and the RipChords, before Glenn Tilbrook closed the day’s events with a Squeeze filled set.

Saturday’s event was part of a wider series of Parksfest events run across Greenwich borough, and there are many more to come. Check out the Parksfest calendar for further details, and keep scrolling to see more from Saturday afternoon.
