On July 3rd, 2013, Portman Village will once again get together to hold its famous annual street party, bringing together the boutiques, salons, restaurants and pubs in the area to celebrate summer. This year’s Street Party pays tribute to Wimbledon Tennis and will see the street transformed with artificial grass, live entertainment, workshops, plenty of Pimms and of course, strawberries and cream. The event is open to the public and party goers will be able to indulge and experience all the shops have to offer, from delicious drinks and canapés, to beauty treatments and special offers from Portman Village’s boutiques.
All of Portman Village’s shops, restaurants and pubs will add their unique touch to the Street Party, whether that’s offering eyebrow threading and beauty treatments from salons such as iBrows etc and Beauty Rose, to face painting and DIY workshops from Homemade London. Buy my Wardrobe, the designer sale outlet, will be hosting their first ever clearance sale, so you can snap up designer fashion for less. In addition to local traders, a selection of top hotels in the area such as The Cumberland and Hyatt Regency London The Churchill also join in, with delicious tasters from their brasseries and bars. Live entertainment brings the street party to life and there is something for all ages and interests. Face-painting, Punch & Judy and special workshops for children will keep them occupied all day, whilst adults can enjoy the comedy theatre, jazz band on stilts and performances from Trio Manouche, one of the UK’s leading gypsy swing ensembles.
The Portman Estate is committed to charitable initiatives and as well as providing a fantastic event for locals and Londoners to enjoy, St John’s hospice is the chosen charity. for the Portman Village Street Party. The Portman Estate have supported St John’s Hospice for a number of years and the charity will hold 4 stalls at the event, ranging from a children’s stand to a “little wimbledon” themed stall with strawberries and cream and a table tennis challenge for which voluntary donations can be made.
For summer fun with a charity extra, make sure you put this date in your diary.
