Marylebone Summer Festival Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary


The annual Marylebone Summer Festival will be returning on Sunday 9 June, and this year, the summer event will be celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Marylebone Village will be fully pedestrianised and showcase the best of the area’s shopping and dining. Family-friendly activations to enjoy on the day include a pop up mini golf course, a dedicated dog zone ‘Bark in the Park’, a wellness hub with Lululemon exercise classes, a Ferris wheel and rides, live music featuring a variety of artists and genres, a farmers market, and a lineup of unmissable entertainment to mark two decades of the much-loved community festival held in the heart of central London.

There will be alfresco bars and dining to enjoy the buzzing atmosphere, and an abundance of street stalls offering food and beverages from the local cafes and restaurants, and selling fresh produce and products from fashion and lifestyle brands. The retailers in Marylebone Village will also be running a host of in-store activations and exclusive discounts, whilst restaurants will be rolling out special menus and offers for the day.

‘Bark in the Park’, presented by London’s most active dog community, YapYap, will be taking place in Marylebone Church Gardens, with a range of canine activities and workshops including a puppuccino cart, pawtrait illustrations, doggy tarot card reading and more. There will also be a variety of competitions, hosted by BBC broadcaster Jo Good, designed for both owners and their pets to take part in, with prizes to be won.

Marylebone Summer Festival is organised and funded by The Howard De Walden Estate, who carefully nurture Marylebone Village, one of London’s most distinctive and atmospheric shopping destinations. This year’s festival will be raising funds for charity partner, Young Westminster Foundation, who invest in brighter futures for young people in the local area. There will be a charity tombola with a variety of fashion, lifestyle and beauty prizes to win, and all sales made from the activations will be donated to Young Westminster Foundation.

The full schedule of events and activations will be announced very soon.
