“…there’s so many different people here and everyone’s really getting on and talking to each other…”
Once again, the Portobello Summer Festival took over the streets and stages of North Kensington to celebrate local and international voices.
This video was produced by Fully Focused,
an award-winning youth-led media organisation
that believes film can change mindsets and transform lives.
“I’ve met people I haven’t seen for over 20, 30 years… everybody’s mingling, dancing in the open under the sky, it’s fantastic…”
As our handy infographic below demonstrates, local talent took the spotlight this year with 76% of the performers across the 5 stages living with 4 miles of the Westway Estate.
“It’s important to engage the community because when that happens we unite as one”
Here’s a look back at some of the festival’s highlights.
