The 54th Hanwell Carnival is taking place this Saturday (20 June).

This year, the acoustic tent becomes 'Alice’s Acoustic Tent' in memory of 14-year-old Hanwell schoolgirl, Alice Gross, murdered last year.

The tent will feature performances from both people who knew her and those who want to perform in her memory.

Alice has inspired a lot of what is happening and many events will help Alice's Youth Music Memorial Fund, the charity set up in her memory.
Youth music will have a stall at the carnival explaining the work they do.
Half the profits at the Pimm's Tent will go to the fund (the other half to help stage next year's carnival).
You can donate by text notices in the tent and programme as well as cash.

The procession’s theme is Historic Hanwell – prepare to be amazed at the things that have happened here and the people who have lived or were born here.

The procession will leave from the community centre in Westcott Crescent at 11am and make its way through Hanwell to Elthorne Park.

The history buffs out there can find more information at the first ever history tent, run by David Blackwell of the Hanwell Heritage and Local History Society.

Also new is the Hanwell Carnival Bake Off, in collaboration with the Hanwell WI. Here's hoping there will be no soggy bottoms either in the Bake Off or the park generally, with the sun shining all day long.

Entry into Elthorne Park is free.
