House Festival Raises 75,000 pounds for Restoration Project
Hot bands, hot weather and fantastic food make House Festival a huge success.
We are delighted to announce that the House Festival, held in the park in July, has raised £75,000 for the restoration project. The festival, organised by Soho House’s Nick Jones, was a great success and was enjoyed by over 3,000 people.
Guests enjoyed complimentary lobster, hog roast, oysters and champagne whilst listening to some of the UK’s hottest music talent.
This year’s line-up included The Hoosiers, Tom Baxter, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Will Young, The Kooks and The Sugarbabes, with the grand finale provided by The Feeling.
According to local website Chiswick W4, “Celeb spotting revealed that Kylie Minogue, James May and Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen were among the revellers as were Anneka Rice, Matthew Wright, Angus Deayton and Jamie Theakston.”
Radio One’s Jo Whiley and Richard Bacon hosted the event and funds raised from the festival will go towards the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust restoration project.
The Trust is extremely grateful to Soho House for staging the Festival and to the various companies they engaged to sponsor it. We would also like to thank everyone that bought a ticket – both local and from further afield – for their generous support.
