Love Parks Wandsworth 2020

Love Parks Wandsworth 2020

On Saturday 12 September we celebrated the end of Wandsworth council’s Love Parks campaign. The Bandstand Chamber Festival, Cllr Steffi Sutters and The Mayor of Wandsworth closed the programme along with a performance by the Hill Quartet. The Love Parks campaign successfully showcased a whole host of socially distanced programmes this summer.

The campaign launched with a mini-plog litter pick on Wandsworth Common with a further three litter pick engagement days running across various parks in Wandsworth. The Bandstand Chamber Festival brought four classical chamber music performances to the Bandstand in Battersea Park and we had free live performances at the Bandstand every Sunday in August, as part of the Wandsworth Summer Sessions.

FitSW11 hosted a free fun body workout every Saturday that got just under 100 people moving! Shillington Gardens was transformed into an outdoor theatre and showcased two performances; one from Shakespeare Out Loud, and another from a play called Estimated Waiting Time.

On Bank Holiday Monday Disability Sports Coach put on an inclusive sports session in Battersea Park, while the weekend after saw Alice in Wonderland performing at Furzedown Recreation Ground’s Bowling green, produced by Let’s All Dance.

We would like to thank everyone who supported and participated and all the companies and performers who took part.
