POSTPONED.

 

Chiswick Festival is postponed. 

As we’re sure you’re aware, coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions have now eased in England.

However there are other issues surrounding huge increases in the spread of the virus, and the NHS Test and Trace app “pinging” an exorbitant amount of people to self-isolate. Many are also being called and told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. This has already led to some of our own colleagues needing to self-isolate.

It’s for these reasons that we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone Chiswick Festival 2021.

Rescheduling the event will enable us to provide the experience that our customers, partners, and employees expect and deserve – and most importantly – in a safe environment.

We want to thank all our customers and partners for their support, open discussions, and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together.

We’re just working with Chiswick House and Gardens on the rescheduled dates, however, we will be pushing this back to Spring 2022, as a “welcome to summer event”.

Instead of asking who’d like to keep their tickets or not; we’re simply going to refund everyone. When we have the new dates agreed and established which acts can attend these dates, we’ll put the tickets back up online.

All refunds will be processed this week and early next week and usually, it can take a day or two before you see the refund in your account.

We do hope you’ll stick with us and we look forward to you joining us at the beginning of summer 2022 for an even bigger and better Chiswick Festival!

Thank you for your continued support.

The team at Chiswick Festival.

Background

What is Chiswick Festival & where did it start?

A furloughed group of event organisers, local to Chiswick House & Grounds, often escaped to the landscaped gardens, picturesque setting and tranquility the venue offered during lockdown to break away from the groundhog day living in the same 4 walls that we’ve all become ascutomed to of late. 

We heard how Chiswick House & Gardens were suffering financially due to Covid, and there was risk to jobs and caretakers who looked after what became a place many  1000s of locals escaped to. So we decided to help, and put our event management skills to good use.

During the Summer of 2020, the Chiswick Festival team invented a new, pioneering Covid Secure Event concept – where we successfully delivered evenings of jazz, opera and rock, to comedy and bingo nights. We staged 21 nights of entertainment and safely entertained over 5,000 visitors – making us one of the few event organisers safely hosting Covid Secure Events.

And now we’re back!

THE EVENT

Explore more about the event, menu, and entertainment

Join us for a celebration of music, comedy with food and drink from around the world, supporting our local caterers and bands, whilst bringing everyone together.

Experience great dishes from a variety of food stands – from healthy wraps and vegan dishes to Tex Mex and Pulled Meat. All whilst you’ll be entertained by bands, DJs, & comedians.

The first hour you’ll be able to enjoy grazing tapas-style food, from local restaurants and caterers, listening to DJ’s playing eclectic music in the background, before you watch a comedy act or band for an hour, then you can enjoy more food and drink for another hour before the main act in the last hour closes the session.

– arrive and be seated at your table (1st hour), enjoy background music whilst grazing on food from local caterers & drinks from our bar

– an hour into the event, sit back and relax with a comedy set or band on stage for about an hour

– enjoy another 45 mins or so of background music by a DJ whilst the main band gets set up

– The final hour you’ll be entertained by a main act (ABBA, Queen, Bootlet Beatles etc)

Tables, Chairs & Servers

This year, you can expect to see lots of picnic tables and chairs, to sit down and enjoy the food and drinks.

QR codes on the tables; no queuing at the bar, or catering stands!

Friendly, smiley waiters and waitresses bringing you food and drink all afternoon and evening!

 

Tapas Style – All Dishes £5

Instead of one big dish; all our caterers will be offering smaller dishes, with everything priced at just £5.00. Meaning you’ll be able to enjoy more, different cuisines and graze for a few hours before the main act.

Sensible portions at sensible prices, so we can spread the love between all the caterers on site.

Covid Secure.

Chiswick Festival 2021 sees everyone with their own tables and chairs this year; that will all have been santised before your arrival. With this in mind, the spacing between tables, the fact drinks and food will be brought to you, coupled with our policies, we’re making the event very safe for everyone attending, both guests and our associates.
